Dr. Benjamin R. Moore III, an Atlanta native, is the Founder of the Keyz 2 tha LexisTM, K2thaL, a language-focused learning program centered on the principles of Linguistics. In the Fall 2014, he graduated from GSU with his bachelor’s degree and in the Spring of 2015, he was offered admission into the Masters program in Applied Linguistics at GSU starting in the summer. In addition, he obtained contracts at several early learning centers across metro Atlanta and was able to run Keyz 2 tha Lexis full-time as a financially independent entrepreneur. Things were looking amazingly bright both professionally and academically for Benjamin; however, at the end of that summer semester, a tragic accident claimed the life of his daughter, Leilani. Devastated, Benjamin took a year off from K2thaL and teaching as a whole, toughed through the next few semesters and was still able to graduate on time in the Fall of 2016. In the Fall of 2018, he was offered a research and teaching assistantship with Dr. Geoffrey Graybeal in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) in Robinson College of Business at GSU. Additionally, he was honored by ENI and interviewed as spotlight student founder where they wrote an amazing article about his journey as an entrepreneur developing K2thaL. In May of 2021, he completed his Ph.D. program, and currently, Dr. Moore is devoting all of his professional and academic acumen to serving his community and pursuing the monumentality propitious success of K2thaL through his unique brand of teaching and learning strategies.
