Dawn’s background and fun facts… Dawn grew up in west Fort Worth the majority of life graduating from Western Hills High School and then finishing her education at University of Mississippi at Oxford. Lordy, when Ole Miss is playing you can hear the “Hotty Toddy” chant from her house. With her husband, Josh, being a Texas Tech alumni it really gets fun with the smack when Tech plays Ole Miss.
