Klein ISD hosted the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce Luncheon at the Klein Multipurpose Center on Thursday. Throughout the event, learners were awarded scholarships and professional certifications. Two Klein students were among the recipients.
Klein Collins senior Kristie Yim received a scholarship from Lone Star College-University Park.
“Lone Star’s generosity allows me to pursue my dreams of being a nurse,” she said. “I feel so fortunate to have been chosen as a recipient for this honor. I promise I will work hard and put this money to good use.”
Another Klein Collins senior, Jordyn Johnson, took an initial interest in pharmacology her junior year. Thanks to Houston Methodist Hospital, Johnson received her Pharmacy Technician certification and now truly feels thoroughly prepared for future success.
“It feels great, it feels like I have a head start in life,” she said. “I can now work as a Pharmacy Tech in college and gain that valuable experience.”
The luncheon featured Aldine, Klein and Spring students, staff and leaders, as well as business partners from across the diverse community we all call home.
While celebrating community, comradery and student success, leaders and learners alike were able to build and nurture positive and productive relationships. To conclude, Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. LaTonya Goffney, Spring ISD Superintendent Dr. Rodney Watson and Klein ISD’s own Dr. Bret Champion spoke on a panel to share the exceptional progress being made in each of their home districts.
“We are so honored to get to represent the excellence that is in all of our districts,” Dr. Champion said. “We get to be the public face but honestly there are so many people who make these places a great place to live and to learn.”
