Students Commit to Athletic, Academic, Military Pathways on National Signing Day
In Klein ISD, National Signing Day is one filled with cheering, clapping, high-fives and celebration cupcakes.
For the 101 student-athletes who signed a letter of intent to the college of their choice, this day was a culmination of four years’ hard work being recognized, respected and celebrated. Like many of her student-athlete peers, University of the Incarnate Word commit Abby Frank reminisced on her Klein High School softball career while looking ahead to furthering her academic and athletic skills.
“This moment means everything,” she said. “I’ve worked so hard for this since I was 10 years old. I’m so excited for the future.”
Schools across the district invited family and friends to share this occasion with their student-athlete at a special Signing Ceremony. Julie Silhan’s son, Luke, will leave for Lubbock Christian University after his Klein Oak graduation to pursue his education and serve as the men’s soccer goalkeeper.
Julie explained that the journey leading up to this day was long but worth it.
“The only word I have is proud,” she said. “I’m excited to see him grow as an athlete, as a man, and as a human being. He’s had great mentors, like his soccer coach, who have pushed him to find opportunities and make connections to get him where he is today.”
We would like to congratulate these learners for striving to fulfill their purpose in Klein ISD, as well as the teachers, faculty, staff, and coaches who fulfilled their promise to help get them there.
