Dr. Kara Trevino

Hey Roos!

My name is Kara Trevino, and I am honored to serve as the principal of Killeen High School. If you really knew me, you would know I was born and raised in Killeen, Texas and attended Bellaire Elementary School, Nolan Middle School, and Killeen High School. I also starting my teaching and coaching career at KHS in 2001. I never wanted to pursue any other profession outside of education, and I can remember having the desire to teach since about the first grade. Serving as an educator is my calling, and I am proud to support students and families in my hometown where I received so much care and love over the years. I received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, a Master of Education degree from Tarleton State University-Central Texas, and a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I have been married to Chris Trevino for 18 years, and we are the proud parents of a 12-year-old GSP (German Shorthaired Pointer) named Hondo!

At Killeen High School, we are a family, and we value integrity, relationships, collaboration, success, and school pride. We are excited to begin a new school year full of new opportunities and experiences. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or need assistance. In our family, we stick together and take care of each other. I wish everyone a ROOTASTIC school year! ROO PRIDE IS JUSTIFIED!
