Kenneth Rodgers

Kenneth Rodgers has been awarded this recognition for exceptional efforts during the quarter of October through December 2019. Ever since he has started work with Knight Federal Solutions he has been fighting adversity. In his first few months, he and his family suffered the loss of two family members. Through all of this he continues to work and has missed a minimal amount of work. 

In this past year, he was a keynote speaker for a college, received his doctorate in mechanical engineering and promotes a national education program called S.T.E.M (Science Technical Engineering Mathematics) for the inner city youth in Norfolk. During all this, Kenneth continues to provide support to NAVFAC Mid Altantic CI43 Mechanical Engineering Group on such projects as P-777 Marine Corps Reserve Center, P-102 Building 370 Renovation and P-3001 ATFP Perimeter Security. Kenneth is dedicated to his work and believes in doing a good job no matter what the world puts in front of you. His exceptional performance during this period is a credit to Knight Federal Solutions and the Navy Tech Support Team.
