About Jeanette Underwood
I have been a Navarro College Bulldog since I was born. I grew up on the Corsicana campus going to sporting events and concerts. I graduated from Navarro College in 2005 after a wonderful two years of living on the Corsicana campus, participating in band and choir, and serving as a RA during my sophomore year. I received my Bachelor’s from Tarleton State University and my Master’s from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
After graduate school in 2010, I felt like coming “home” and Navarro has always felt like home to me. As a student, Navarro College prepared me for my college pursuits. I am a very motivated person but I often take on too much. While at Navarro as a student, I learned to manage my time and complete my assignments while participating in extracurricular activities. The Instructors at Navarro are amazing and take time to show students how much they care. I loved each of my classes!
As a child, my favorite memory is doing cartwheels up and down the gym floor after each basketball game. As a student, my favorite memory is playing in the band for the football games. As a faculty member, my favorite memory is announcing awards at the Student Appreciation Banquet and seeing all of the students with their families.
“Outside of work, I am very active at my church and spend a lot of time with my family and friends.”
“Never follow someone else’s path; unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path, then by all means, you should follow that.” – Ellen DeGeneres
