Welcome to the MHS College and Career Page

My name is Kara Harper, the College & Career Coordinator for MHS. I began my career in education 24 years ago. I have been a teacher, university academic advisor, librarian and now the C&C Coordinator. I spent the first 35 years of my life in Oklahoma, moved to Magnolia in 2012 and began working for Magnolia ISD the same year. I graduated with a BS in Education from Oklahoma City University in 1999 and my Masters in Library and Information Science from SHSU in 2020. My children are recent graduates of Magnolia High School and are currently in college. I am excited to navigate this journey with students, parents, staff and the community as we explore future opportunities.
