Klein ISD educators, administrators, staff, community, and founding family members gathered at Hofius Intermediate Nov. 15 to join the long tradition of dedication ceremonies in Klein ISD. Also in attendance last night was Lyle Lovett, Klein ISD alum and Grammy Award-winning artist.
“To be here tonight for the dedication is an inspiring experience,” said Lovett. “Seeing what has happened to the Klein community is amazing!”
The ceremony featured performances by the Hofius girls choir who led guests in the signing of the national anthem. During the event, Board President Bill Pilkington presented Klein ISD Executive Director of Facility and School Services August Wunderlich with the resolution and Coat of Arms, and Commissioner Jack Cagle’s office issued a proclamation to Hofius and its founding families.
Additionally, Principal Christy Goforth announced that the fine arts wing would be named in honor of Lovett.
“We are honored to dedicate our fine arts wing in his name,” said Goforth. “We think that’s appropriate to celebrate him as a legend, alum, and founding family member of the Klein community.”
Hofius Intermediate is the namesake of the families of Maria Katharina and Magdalena Margaretha Hofius. The Hofius family were pioneers in the development of the North Harris County setting near Big Cypress or present-day Klein in 1852 after emigrating from the community of Weide in the province of Prussia.
“I am so proud to be a part of the Klein family and to be a part of what our community and school district has become,” said Lovett.
