Mrs. Karen H. Collins
Born in Wilson, NC, my parents are JoCo natives from the Kenly area. I graduated from Hunt High School, NC State, and VCU. I have taught high school mathematics in two different states in four different high schools, since 1987. I have been at West Johnston since 2004. I have been married for 33 years and have a 23 year-old son who graduated from Liberty University in May 2019. My son recently got engaged and is getting married in October 2021!
