Conner Staton

Hannah Robinson

Sophomore, Advertising and Mass Communications

Hi! My name is Hannah, and I'm the HSA's volunteer coordinator. I'm majoring in Advertising and Mass Communications, and I'm starting my sophomore year and enjoying every minute of it! I love to travel - which you can maybe tell by my study abroad shirt - but I also love staying in San Marcos! This year is going to be an amazing year for the HSA, and I can't wait to see y'all there!



Desereah Tolbert

Senior, Elementary Education

My name is Desereah, and I am the secretary for HSA this year! I am a Junior, and I am majoring in Elementary Education, with a minor in Special Education. In addition to HSA, and other organizations, I work on the third floor of Alkek (come say hi!), and I also serve as a Peer Mentor for the class of 2021! I love to read, watch Netflix (who doesn't?), and be a Bobcat! I'm really looking forward to working with you all.

My name is Joy and I am the volunteer coordinator for HSA. I am Pre-Dental with a major in Chemistry and a minor in History and Biology. My motto is, think like a proton - always positive. Warning: I make bad chemistry puns, but only periodically.
