Kyley Jarrard

Technique & Lyrical

My name is Kyley Jarrard and I am a recent alumni of Georgia Southern University and the Georgia Southern dance team. I served on the Fundraising chair my Junior year and served as the president of the dance team my senior year. I graduated Georgia Southern with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in plans to attend Physician Assistant school in the near future. Being a part of the dance team was such an incredible experience and has blessed my life in so many ways. I have met my life long best friends/sisters, have grown as a person, and truly learned what it was like to be a teammate. I will never forget the impact GSU and the dance team had on my life! As always, GO EAGLES!!
