Student Spotlight: Keaira Hawkins, Class of 2019

Meet Ms. Keaira Hawkins! We are shining a spotlight on Keaira because NC afforded her an opportunity to expand her studies in athletic training while working with top College athletes.

Background: She is from Dallas, Texas and graduated from Desoto High School in 2017

Why She Chose Navarro College: She wanted to go to a D1 university to continue her education in Athletic Training. She found Navarro College to be more affordable and a really good learning experience in her field of studies.

“Being able to be part of the Navarro College Athletic Training program, I had the opportunity to work with amazing athletes. Sophomore year I directly worked with our 14x National Champions, Navarro College Cheerleading. Working one on one with 38 amazing athletes for 9 months straight gave me a chance to work hands-on with active athletes. Navarro College Cheer gave me a chance to expand my knowledge in Athletic Training and given me more opportunities than I would’ve received at a D1 university.”

Impactful NC Staff: Nancy Chaney, Cameron Hieb, Monica Aldama, and Peggy Anderson

Future Plans: Attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville majoring in Exercise and Allied Health Professions

GPA: 3.0
