Nikita Villegas, Klein Forest Valedictorian – 2021 Senior Spotlight
Golden Eagle Nikita Villegas is flying out of the Eagle’s Nest as the 2021 Valedictorian!
While extremely well-versed in academics and extracurricular activities, Nikita also excels as a student-leader and source of inspiration for her peers at Klein Forest High School.
Nikita has shown dedication to her high school through clubs and activities such as the Science National Honor Society, National Honor Society, HOSA, Chamber Orchestra, SAT Club, Academic Decathlon, Computer Science Club, and more! Within these clubs, she had the pleasure to serve as the President of the Science National Honor Society, the Treasurer of the National Honor Society, and as a Collegeboard SAT Ambassador.
“I must say, high school was one heck of a roller coaster! From Hurricane Harvey to a Pandemic, I for sure did not have a typical high school experience. Despite all the craziness, I still managed to create some of my best memories in high school,” said Nikita. “Celebrating sweepstakes for Orchestra UIL, placing in Decathlon, and late FaceTime calls over Chemistry (yes, I enjoyed doing Chemistry homework…most of the time) are all memories that I will forever treasure. It is during high school that I learned to grow from my mistakes and develop myself as a person, and I could not have done that without the support of all my excellent teachers and of course, my wonderful parents. Now, it is time to face the extreme challenges of the competitive college world, and I am more than excited to see what is waiting for me out in the world. “
After graduation, Nikita plans to major in Biomedical Engineering at either the University of Texas at Austin or the University of Houston.
Nikita’s joyful attitude and tenacious spirit as she exits with a purpose reminds us that our learners are truly remarkable. Your Klein Family will always be cheering you on, Nikita!
