Deputy Mayor Kenny johnson is one of the most effective leaders palm bay has ever seen.

Kenny Johnson was born in Melbourne, FL. He graduated from Bayside High School and went on to play collegiate football with a full athletic scholarship at Charleston Southern University. While there he earned his bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and pledged Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. This is an organization which was founded on the principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance, and uplift.
Upon an early graduation, he returned home to Brevard County where he worked as a juvenile case manager, juvenile detention officer, teacher, coach, mentor, and personal trainer. In 2016, he started his own business called Top Notch Training of Brevard, Inc. whose mission has been to provide area residents access to affordable and effective health and wellness plans so they may exceed their fitness goals through education, nutrition, and safe action.
Kenny’s favorite quote comes from Frederick Douglass: “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Since 2013, Kenny has been dedicating his time and efforts to mentor and educate the youth of our community through self-organized mentor programs at schools, his place of business, and other community events.
One of his first acts as a councilman was creating a Youth Advisory Board for high school students to have a platform to share their ideas and perspectives on how to continue improving our city. He also established Palm Bay’s Annual Black History Event; a Business Assistance Web Page to teach potential business owners everything they would need to start a business in our community; Palm Bay’s Inaugural Veteran’s Day Parade; and a Civil Citation Program to provide law enforcement additional tools to address the possession of misdemeanor amounts of cannabis and paraphernalia, and to allow offenders to address their actions through a fine or community service rather than jail time which would have long term effects on their livelihood.
