ABOUT KATHRYN

Hi, y’all! My name is Kathryn Haerr, and I’m from Plano, Texas! Back at home, I have a younger brother, Chris, who is also my best friend, my mom and dad, and my yellow Labrador retriever, Lucky. While I’m at home with my friends and family, I enjoy going country dancing, trail biking, and spending time outside in my hammock.

Before coming here to the Academy, I had a civilian college experience as I attended Texas A&M University down in College Station, Texas. It was a year full of many blessings and learning experiences. I found that although my year at Texas A&M University was an amazing experience, it was not how I wanted to serve my country. The U.S. Coast Guard’s humanitarian mission is purely unique to all of the other military branches, and serving at such a large scale within a family-like environment is something unmatched.

After completing the trials of Swab Summer with my shipmates and moving on into the journey of fourth class year, I have recognized that self-imposed limits are only as restrictive as I allow them to be and that the room for growth keeps expanding. Depending on God as my strength, I am continually amazed as I learn more about the impact and gift of service that my shipmates and I will be able to give while in the U.S. Coast Guard.
