Robin Kovis-April 2021 I was born in Yakima, Washington, and have lived in Eastern Washington most of my life. I graduated from Chiawana High School in 2011 and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps that same year. From 2011 to 2017, I served as a Scout Sniper and Infantryman, deploying to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Republic of Georgia. Following my honorable discharge and one year at Columbia Basin College, I transferred to WSU Tri-Cities in 2018.

Since enrolling at WSU Tri-Cities, I have been heavily involved in our student government, and I currently serve as the organization’s President. I’m also the Captain of Men’s Club Rugby, and I am an active member of the History Club and Veterans Club. After I graduate in May 2021, I plan to attend law school. The education I have received at WSU Tri-Cities has given me an excellent foundation for my future studies. The WSU College of Arts and Sciences delivers top-notch instruction on a wide range of topics, and they always promote an inclusive learning environment.
