Allison Harris - Reporter for Fox4,
Thanks for being our emcee for the evening.
Allison Harris grew up right here in McKinney with her parents and twin brothers. She graduated as president of the first class at McKinney Boyd High School.
Allison received a degree in journalism from the University of Oklahoma, where she was honored to be named the top collegiate news anchor in the country by the Broadcast Education Association.
In addition, she received the highest student honor from the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters. As if her education and accolades weren’t enough here in the United States, she ventured to Europe where she studied journalism abroad in London and Paris at CNN International, Sky News, BBC, The Guardian and more.
Allison returned back to Texas and began her professional career KXII-TV in Sherman before heading south on US 75 where she is currently a reporter at FOX 4 in Dallas.
