Kyle Reeder is a sixth-generation native Prince Georgian and self-proclaimed “community alchemist.” He finds purpose in his quest to revive the heart of Prince George’s County and transform the perceptions of those unaware of the potential of his underserved bedroom community, Capitol Heights. He is a product of Prince George’s County Public Schools, a graduate of Prince George’s Community College and received a bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Towson University.
Reeder takes pride in being an engaged citizen and a good neighbor. In concert with the Prince George’s County Board of Elections, he worked to maintain the integrity of the voting process as an election judge and participated in a Prince George’s County Planning Department’s working group to prepare the Sustainable Community Initiative application/action plan for the Central Avenue – Blue Line Corridor. During his tenure at Community Forklift, he advocated for green principles and educated his neighbors on local reuse/recycling programs. Through his work with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s public education campaign, Fresh Empire, he pushed to reduce tobacco use amongst at-risk youth.
Reeder currently serves the U.S. General Services Administration as a global project manager, where he supports a multidisciplinary team to deliver the planning, acquisition, design, and construction of federal real estate projects around the National Capital Region.
Whether he’s bustling in a community garden, being “fake-bougie” with neighbors at “Wine & Cheese” night, or organizing communal meals like Meal on the Hill at Gethsemane United Methodist Church, Reeder bestows his very best, remembering that wherever his heart is, there he will find his treasure.
