Keara B. Harrison

Medina, TX

On Christmas in 2010, Keara Harrison’s mother began feeling dizzy, losing her balance and feeling weak on her right side. “She had lovingly waited until all of us kids finished opening our presents to ask my father to drive her to the hospital,” Keara says. Since that day, this Medina High School graduate watched the devastating disease take its toll on her mother and their family emotionally, physically and financially. Regardless of the additional challenges, Keara worked hard in school, receiving numerous math, science and English awards. She hopes to continue this success at the University of Texas in San Antonio as she pursues a degree in Cultural Anthropology to learn about people and their cultures. After achieving professional success, Keara is hopeful that she will be able to give back to her community by increasing MS awareness in rural areas.
