After graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 2017, Kenner served on active duty as a second lieutenant in the Center for Enhanced Performance at West Point. It was his plan and dream to lead American soldiers as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army. During his time as a second lieutenant, he was diagnosed with a degenerative retina disease which causes severe vision impairment and often leads to blindness. This unfortunate diagnosis forced him to end his military career much earlier than anticipated.
Honorably discharged in the fall of 2018, Kenner sought other opportunities to continue representing our great nation. He spent the winter (2018-2019) training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY as a developmental Skeleton Athlete for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Team. It was after completion of the skeleton season that Kenner attended the Service Academy Career Conference where he discovered Bancroft Capital. Kenner has always enjoyed learning about the financial industry and is eager to begin his professional career in the industry with Bancroft Capital.
“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Veteran Training Program at Bancroft Capital,” expressed Kenner. “It is humbling to be a candidate with an organization that is committed to serving others and that holds such a high standard of character for its employees.”
