Channing Hankins is a junior communication studies major and marketing minor at St. Mary’s University where she also is a captain on the volleyball team. She loves art, traveling, photography, and bringing out her creativity in everything that she does.

Originally from Katy, Texas, Hankins attended and played volleyball at Katy High School. She began at St. Mary’s as an Exercise and Sports Science major but eventually found a passion for the field of communication at the beginning of her sophomore year.

Hankins’ achievements include being named to the Academic All-State and Academic All-District teams at Katy High School and to the Commissioner’s List on the Heartland Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll in 2015 and 2016. In the summer of 2018 she intends to intern at a marketing or advertising firm to gain experience in the field.

Hankins will graduate in May 2019 and hopes to begin a career that will allow her to express her ideas and creativity with passion, not limiting herself to one location for work as she plans to travel and spread her knowledge to other parts of the world.
