Devyn S. Keith Council Member

District 1

Devyn S. Keith was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, and is a proud product of its large community network. Devyn has always had a passion for public service and a deep connection to the residents of his community.

As an accomplished student-athlete at Sparkman High School, Devyn decided to attend Samford University on a full athletic scholarship.  Devyn concentrated his course of studies in Human Development and Family Science. During his undergraduate career, his passion for community service led him to start a nonprofit called Brothers of 1 Voice (BO1V). BO1V aimed to educate, empower and advocate for youths who have aged out of state support services. Throughout his time at Samford, Devyn was involved with a number of Birmingham City based programs, such as the Birmingham Kitchen Table that worked to increase public awareness, municipal accountability and civic engagement.
