KILGORE, Texas (KETK) — Being able to sing with a program such as Texas Tech is an achievement unto itself, but to do it while also being active duty military is on another level.

That’s exactly what Kilgore College’s basketball player Tara Kessner did Wednesday afternoon on campus, surrounded by her family and teammates.

Kessner was not able to play for the Lady Rangers last season, because she was called to action to serve her country.

She says her time in the military, as well as the support she has received from Kilgore College, has led her to this milestone in life.
