Student Spotlight: Keyle Hawk

Keyle Hawk, a senior Early Childhood Education major, knew from a young age that she wanted to work with children, but she wasn’t always sure what direction to take. In high school, a mission trip to Guatemala afforded her the opportunity to teach English at an orphanage, which changed her perspective.

During her time at Ohio University, Keyle has immersed herself in several teaching and leadership endeavors. As Vice President of the Students in Early Childhood Education Organization (SECO) on campus, she volunteers in the Athens City School District and fundraises on behalf of children in need.
