Greetings, My name is Brian Hawkins. I am currently a sophomore student at BSU pursuing a degree in English Secondary Education. I have two children who represent my best work ;), however I am devoted to my education as often and I while I have always been a reader, I am finding a new love for literature. I play hockey in the community league and I find civic participation of this sort to be rewarding. Born in Germany though only briefly a resident, I have lived most of my life in Bemidji and despite travel, really see no reason to leave. Eventually my goal is to serve in the community that raised me and give back to it the best I can.
