Jeremy King, Board Chair

Jeremy King is a 1998 graduate of KCS and serves as an alumni representative on the school’s board of directors. He first came to Kingwood in 1983, well before there was a Child Development Center, for what was then called “K-3” or “three-year-old Kindergarten.” His mother, Phyllis King, started her private school teaching career at Kingwood and was a longtime fifth grade educator. Jeremy stayed through third grade, when his family was moved back home to Louisville, Ky. The Kings came back to Alabama in 1994, just in time for Jeremy to start high school at KCS. Phyllis resumed her teaching career at KCS in 1997, returning to the fifth grade classroom. While Phyllis is retired, she and Jeremy’s father, Monta, remain active in the Kingwood organization. After graduating from KCS, Jeremy attended the University of Alabama, where he graduated with a degree in telecommunication and film. He was a radio and television news anchor, reporter, and producer for WTXT-FM, WJRD-TV and ABC 33/40 for a combined 13 years before transitioning to the world of media relations. For two years, he served as a political communications director at the State Capitol in Montgomery. Since 2013, he has served as Vice President of Corporate Communications at the headquarters of Regions Bank in Birmingham. Jeremy and his family attend Kingwood Church, where they are active in various volunteer services. He’ll tell you his education at Kingwood prepared him well for college and his career. He hopes his service to the board of KCS will make a meaningful contribution to your child’s education as well.
