VIDEO: SMSgt William Hardy Named Superintendent Initiative Award Recipient

Klein Forest AFJROTC Instructor Senior Master Sergeant William Hardy was named a 2022 Superintendent Initiative Award recipient. 

Though he may seem like a serious and dedicated instructor on the outside, that’s not all he is. SMSgt Hardy has a heart for others and has dedicated his life’s work to being a servant-leader on and off campus.

“I am so thankful for Senior Master Sergeant Hardy for always focusing on taking good care of people and taking the initiative to lead with integrity, gratitude, and humility,” Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “He makes our Klein Forest Family of Schools such a special place for our students and employees to learn and work, and he makes our Klein family better because he’s a part of it. Thank you to SMSgt Hardy for being a difference-maker. Congratulations!”

Whether he’s having a heart-to-heart with a cadet or uniting his peers, SMSgt Hardy continues to be a man of wisdom and true selflessness.

“Sergeant Hardy does things every day that enables these kids to have the chance to live a Promise2Purpose life,” Klein Forest Principal Lance Alexander said. “He is someone that leads by example and shows our kids what it means to do everything with passion, care, and commitment. He just does whatever he has to do to ensure our entire community has the means necessary to survive, especially in this day and age.”

His Klein Forest cadets see him as their role model who is always in their corner.

“Senior Master Sergeant Hardy deserves this recognition because he has gone out of his way to help out all of his cadets,” Klein Forest student Nelly Ugarte said. “When the pandemic started, SMSgt Hardy took the initiative to make sure we are not losing values of what TX 953 represents.”

Simply, SMSgt Hardy changes lives.

“SMSgt Hardy is the most influential person in my life,” Klein Forest student Vy Vu said.

Congratulations to Senior Master Sergeant Hardy on this prestigious recognition. Your Klein Family is grateful that you choose to show up every day, in a multitude of ways. We know that our students and all those around you surely benefit from your dedication and kindness!
