Student Historian

Kianna Wright has participated in community service projects such as the YMCA of Greater Houston’s Alumni Teen association. This allowed her to live in Mexico with a local family to build a church in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. She learned how to establish bonds whilst encountering a language barrier. She has also volunteered with the Food Bank, Bering Omega, New Zion Temple Church, and Yates Community Archaeological Program, where she was awarded for finding multiple historical items.

Kianna Wright also is the director of the praise team (Signing Angels) at her church, New Zion Temple, and she is a member of its choir. She also does missionary work for the sick and shut-in by visiting the nursing homes. Kianna believes one of her greatest community service accomplishments was signing in the choir with Kathy Taylor at the Central Texas Youth Gospel Workshop Bryan, College Station where she was awarded a scholarship in 2012.
