“I’ve been a part of Klein ISD since Kindergarten, and have come a long way from being an elementary school toddler who refused to leave her parents to a high school senior who is well-prepared and eager to take on life beyond high school,” said Linh Nguyen. “I’ve been provided with extraordinary educators who’ve helped me realize my potential, a wide selection of vigorous courses that never ceased to stretch my academic boundaries and thirst for learning, and countless memories and friendships that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
After graduation Linh plans to attend the University of Texas at Austin to major in Environmental Science and Sustainability on a Geoscience route. She also plans to study Psychology.
