Kenneth Ray Preston (born January 20, 1999) is an American journalist and school safety activist. He is known for his investigation into the Broward County School Board that led to the discovery of over $100 million in unspent school safety funds. His findings promoted Senator Marco Rubio to request an investigation by both the Departments of Education and Justice. Months later, Governor Ron Desantis convened a Grand Jury to investigate the millions in mismanaged funds. After the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, Preston began researching and presented his investigation to the school board alongside Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the shooting. Preston is also the Student Director of school safety organization Americans for CLASS.
