Huntsville native, Councilman Devyn S. Keith is a proud product of the city’s large community network. As an accomplished student-athlete at Sparkman High School, Devyn went on to attend Samford University on a full athletic scholarship, concentrating his studies in Human Development and Family Science. During his time at Samford, he started a nonprofit called Brothers of 1 Voice or BO1V, aimed at educating, empowering, and advocating for youth who have aged out of state support services. He was also involved with a number of Birmingham City based programs that worked to increase public awareness, municipal accountability and civic engagement.
He went on to further his education at the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, where he received his Master’s in Public Administration. Through his education and working relationships with leaders at the federal, state and local levels in Boston, Devyn learned innovative ways to work around pragmatic politics, policy, and procedures to accomplish sustainable goals. Despite opportunities extended for him to plant in Boston or the D.C. area, Devyn wanted to return home to North Huntsville, where he could help in the continued efforts to build up a community that helped build him.
On November 7th of 2016, Devyn became the youngest elected official in the history of Huntsville, Alabama. He is a believer in open-interface and diverse government, and continues to work on his ability to analytically review issues, objectively identify resources, and create viable solutions. His outlook on increasing civic engagement, progressive policies, and positive perspectives have been a mainstay throughout his career, and will remain at the forefront of his tenure as the District 1 Representative of the Huntsville City Council.
