Keisha graduated from A.C. Jones High School in 2003, and continued her education in 2008 with Texas State University. She was in a car accident in June 2008, which caused her death. She received a recognition of her educational achievements on Feb. 6, 2009, from Coastal Bend College TRIO Programs, her parents receiving the recognition in her honor.
Keisha always set high goals for herself and always strived to achieve them. She enjoyed helping people and loved life in general. Texas State Alumni, which she served as vice president, said about her, “Keisha was a vibrant and unforgettable person who brought a light with her wherever she went.”
