Keyonna Smith '11
"The advice I'd give to high school students about college is to start their college search early and don't rule schools out too soon," said Keyonna, a junior at Santa Clara University. "You never know which school you'll fall in love with. Oh, and learn to do laundry before you leave; there are so many people who don't know how to do laundry."
As a top student at SJND, Keyonna Smith was well-known as an officer in honor societies and clubs, as well as manager of the championship women’s basketball team.
