“I came to Klein ISD in 3rd grade. I had spent most of my life at that point in a small Oklahoma town, where there were about as many people as there are cars on I-45 in the Woodlands at 4:00 in the evening (don’t move cities in rush hour traffic). So you can imagine the terror a 3rd grader felt towards leaving the comfort of his home and moving to a city like Houston. But Klein took this 3rd grader under its wing and revealed a network of friends and teachers that really cared about each other,” said Jacob. “I am truly grateful to Klein for the countless opportunities that I’ve received for the past nine years. This year I have officially been in Klein for the majority of my life, and I wouldn’t trade the stress, frustration, and especially the joy during these nine years for anything.”
After leaving Klein Cain, Jacob will be attending the University of Oklahoma to receive a four-year degree in Biochemistry. He later plans to attend Medical School.
