Blake Kiger was born in Asheville, North Carolina into a family that is passionate about education. His grandfather was a principle, coach, and mentor at a high school in Davidson County, North Carolina. His grandmother also worked at the school and instilled a high value on education at all levels to her children and grandchildren. This passion for their community has been passed down to Blake who has been involved in his community at many levels throughout the years.

He has also been an active member of his church, serving as a deacon in the past, and his neighborhood, serving on the HOA Board.
