Kyle is the current Mr. Prairie View A&M University for 2010, a position he was elevated to in January. In the 2009 Pageant, Kyle wowed the judges with his powerful portrayal of the venerable Paul Robeson. His platform during
his tenure is to focus on Black Menís Health Awareness because he believes that with early detection and prevention, we can save the men from a variety of health-related diseases and even death.
He serves as a positive role model for the students at the university and has provided mentorship to high school students in the summer pre-college programs at the university. Kyle is visionary and innovative and seized the opportunity to assist the university in establishing its first paper recycling project as the director of Environmental Sustainability for the Student Government Association and the Students In Free Enterprise team.

Student In Free Enterprise, Student Government Association , Toastmasters International (Sergeant at Arms), Frederick Douglass Leadership Institute, the W. E. DuBois History Club and a Career Services Ambassador.
In addition to his organizational affiliation, Kyle finds time to volunteer with various community cleanups and services to Houston Food Bank, tutoring and mentoring the young men in his residence hall, and serving on university-wide committees (Students Fee Allocation and Buildings and Naming.)
Kyle believes that young Black men need to step up and take responsibility for their achievements and actions. He is guided by the philosophical words "Up, you mighty race, accomplish what you will." espoused by Marcus Garvey, and is the benchmark for his relationship with his peers and contemporaries.
