Baylor University University Scholar Allie Drain My first year at Baylor was such an amazing experience! It was definitely a challenging transition, and I’m so grateful for the foundation that the teachers from Klein Collins gave me. I don’t think I would have adapted so well to the change and to all my classes if not for everything I learned from my KC teachers. I’d especially like to thank my English teachers for honing my writing skills and encouraging my passion for English, and Ms. Page, Mrs. Buffington, Mrs. Pope, and Mrs. Kruse for all of their wonderful influence and encouragement over my years at KC! And, of course, I’d like to thank my wonderful mom, Kim Drain, for always supporting me, even when I give you so much grief for not listening to you in the first place. (I love you!) Thank you so much KCHS! Go tigers!!
-Lisette Oler, ‘12 I learned a lot at Klein Collins, some things I may never use, others I find myself using all time, like the diplomacy, problem solving, and the determination to stick with things that are difficult. I’ve found that those skills have been the most valuable and most used while I’ve been at UT. I didn’t feel completely overwhelmed because the teachers at KC prepared me far better than I could have imagined. If Mr. Froebel hadn’t given me photo assignments he knew would be difficult for me I would still be a shy, timid student afraid to try anything. I wouldn’t have had the nerve to introduce myself to the dean of the College of Communication and I wouldn’t have gotten into my program. Thank you for the countless hours of teaching, grading, and motivating and preparing me for my future.
Dezrae Groomer College is one of the biggest challenges that I have had to face in my life. Klein Collins has helped me face that challenge and excel in other challenges that I have encountered. The faculty at Collins are the main reason why I can walk into a classroom at Missouri Valley College and be confident in the subject of that class. From algebra to computer programming, I have the confidence to excel in the subject. Some of the teachers that made this possible for me are: Mrs. Polis, Mr. Hardin, Coach Coleman, and Mrs. Reeves. There is one teacher in particular that never gave up on me even though he had multiple opportunities to. He was always there through the good and the bad and he opened the door for me to be where I am today. Coach Kenny Rucker introduced me to a sport that I never thought I would excel in. The day he asked me to wrestle was the day that changed my life. Four years later, I found myself signing a wrestling scholarship offer. Thanks to the faculty, I am able to follow my dreams and be confident in everything I do. Although I am a MVC Viking now, I will always be a Klein Collins Tiger!
Taylor Grissom Class of 2012 Dear Teachers, Coaches, Staff and Administration, I would like to thank you for an incredible high school experience and for preparing me for a successful future. You will never know the impact you have made on my life. The teachers and coaches at Klein Collins have taught me basic skills and study habits, but more importantly, you have instilled values in me that have helped me reach greater goals. With the help of Coach Rhodes and Coach Troutman, I have learned that any dream I have is possible to accomplish with hard work and a positive attitude. I would like to thank the encouraging staff and administration that have always gone the extra mile to make me better prepared for college and have really cared about making their students successful. I was so blessed to receive quality teachers that have helped me become the person I am today. Thank you for everything.
Pre Physical Therapy I could not have asked for a better first year at Texas State. I felt like the year went by much faster than I thought it would. I am thankful to have had such a great staff at Klein Collins to help me in being successful in my first year of college. I would like to thank Mrs. Jones for helping me realize my potential, and helping me join a sorority. A big thank you to Coach Pike for pushing me in soccer, and Mrs. Martinez for being so patient with me in math. As I continue my journey through college, I will not forget the people who helped me get this far. Thank you and I wish the best for this school year.
Samantha Vickroy I owe a lot to the administration and staff at Klein Collins. My teachers were instrumental to my success in high school - they always pushed me to be better than I thought I could be. College is a challenge, and I am learning new skills all the time. But I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had not have had such a positive influence from my teachers. They taught me much more than mathematics, science, or literature. They taught me to always do your best, do more than is expected of you, and that simply putting forth all your effort will get you much farther in life. And I’d like to say thank you to the administration at Klein Collins for not only teaching your students, but truly believing in them. Thank you Mr. Britt, for sharing your love of engineering with me, you made such an impact on my life! THANKS & GIG’EM! Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2016
Sydney Huber Texas A&M University, Class of 2016 Political Science My first year at Texas A&M went by faster than I could ever have imagined. My transition from high school to college was definitely a challenge, and I have Klein Collins to thank for how well I was able to adapt. My teachers, classes, and the organizations I was involved in were outstanding in preparing me for the rigorous classes and exciting opportunities I have been introduced to as an Aggie, and I truly felt prepared for everything I undertook over the past year. Each faculty member I had the honor of getting to know impacted me in a positive way, and I am so grateful for that. Class of 2014, I wish each and every one of you the best of luck during your senior year, and I can only hope Klein Collins has been as good to you as it was to me!
Madeleine Toups University of Texas Class of 2016 - Government My first year of college was a blast and a half! My transition to the University of Texas was marvelous, and I cannot thank the faculty and staff of Klein Collins enough for that. Thanks to the great preparation I received, I was able to excel in both my schoolwork and activities, all while having a fantastic time. The time management skills and study habits I learned in high school could not have prepared me better for the challenges I have faced at UT. Class of 2014, I hope you all have the greatest of senior years, and remember to enjoy every minute of it, because high school will be over before you know it!
Kate Loggins Because of Klein Collins, I had the best high school experience I could have had. I learned from the best educators and I got to be a part of wonderful organizations. College is hard, but I was definitely more prepared because of the education I received here. I learned so many valuable lessons that I can take with me anywhere. I’m proud to say I was a Tiger! Shout out to Stacy “Burnham” Ache for being such a great mentor and my inspiration for my career choice! Thank you!!!
If you only knew how many miracles you have already performed, nothing would ever again overwhelm or frighten you.
Sarah Ma Klein Collins provided me an excellent foundation for college. I felt prepared for difficult college courses because of the hard work my teachers put in to challenge us each and every day. Even more importantly, my teachers supported me through all my endeavors and continuously pushed me to be a better student and a better person. Thank you all for your inspirational work and for your never- ending dedication to help your students grow and flourish. Special thanks to Ms. Templeman for always believing in me!
Hailey Wolf I didn’t realize how much Klein Collins would have affected me, until I got to college. I learned so many valuable things that I don’t believe I would have learned if I had attended anywhere else. My teachers taught me to work hard and to believe in myself. I got to be a part of so many great organizations and I’m thankful that I am a Klein Collins graduate. Once a Tiger, always a Tiger! Shout out to Stacy “Burnham” Ache for believing in me and and giving me so many great opportunities!
Laura Lopez Dear Faculty and Staff, I would like to thank all of you for such a memorable and rewarding four years at Klein Collins. My first year at Texas State was definitely challenging and a huge adjustment to say the least. I don’t think I would have made it through this first year at Texas State without that drive and determination that you instilled in me during my years at Klein Collins. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Coach Rhodes and Coach Troutman. You are both determined and hard working women that have impacted my life tremendously. You have instilled values and morals that have helped shape my life in so many ways. I am so beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know both of you and I would like to thank you as well as the faculty and staff here at Klein Collins for all your help and support.
Thank you to all my teachers and coaches at KCHS. Without you all, I would not be the person that I am. I learned many lessons about specific subjects while at KC, but I also learned lessons about life. A special shout out to Coach Rosie Rhodes and all my English & Math teachers who rocked it! (Also my French teacher ;-). Though I had to leave early to get to summer school at UT, I thank you all and will forever remember you. GO TIGERS! KCHS 2012
The teachers at KC really taught me accountability and good test taking skills. I have really used both skills in college. I felt prepared when taking tests for various subject courses and I really understood the importance of doing your work and doing it on time. College wasn't as much of a culture shock as it would have been without teachers who really valued our future. I truly loved my first year in college and had excellent grades and I know it was all because of the values that were instilled in me at Collins. Megan Grant ‘12
Kristin Watts Klein Collins prepared me not only for higher education but also prepared me for leadership roles. Many teachers impacted my high school experience and proved themselves as excellent role models, I think of them often. As an Aggie, I am academically challenged daily and I am so grateful for the well rounded foundation that Klein Collins provided. Thanks and Gig'em!!!!
Dear Teachers, Coaches, & Staff, You may never know the differences you’ve made in all of your students’ lives. But as a former student, I would like to thank all of you for the impact you’ve had in mine. You were my teachers, but you always went out of your way by tutoring, mentoring, counseling, and leading by example. I am attending Concordia University and last year my GPA for both semesters was a 4.0 because of the great education I received from Klein Collins. It took me a while to realize it, but the four years I spent at Klein Collins were the best years of my life. I especially want to thank everyone who went out of their way to get to know me as a person. The memories I made at this school will last me a lifetime and, I am blessed that Klein Collins was my home for those short four years. Jessica Borrego Class of 2012
Lakshmi Pillai My first year of college practically flew by! It was definitely different from high school but was a journey that the Klein Collins staff left me well prepared for! I am so grateful to all the teachers that I have had throughout the years! I would like to give a special thank you to Ms. Gold for always reminding me to pursue my dreams and to never let a smile leave my face. I would also like to thank Coach Foster for teaching me the true definition of determination. Exactly one year ago, I left Klein Collins having learned many different values and I am proud to say that one I will never forget is Mr. Matheson’s, “Make it a great day or not Tigers, the Choice is yours”. Thank you Klein Collins for making such a great impact on my life. The University of Houston And The University of Texas Health Center
Klein Collins opened many doors of opportunities with the help of numerous faculty members that gave me their support and guidance. There were quite a few teachers I had throughout the four years I was there who sincerely left an impact on me and shaped me into the person who I am today. For example, I feel by having Mrs. Bryan as a teacher for my senior year was a blessing in disguise. She played a big role in preparing me for the transformation of high school to college. With that being said, I would like to express to her, along with the other faculty members, my absolute gratitude for all of their support because it really means the world to me. It is without a doubt that your dedication and lifting spirits are what pushes me to want to succeed at Sam Houston State University. Jessica Rosas Eat em’ Up Kats!
Alex Payne Texas A&M Teachers are the ones who educate the younger generation, and they are the ones who inspire us to find where our passions lie. The teachers at Klein Collins were the ones who helped me find my passions, and they gave me some of the best preparation and advice I could have gotten for my transition into college. I cannot thank enough Mrs. Marek, Coach Del Donno, and Coach Bevan for pushing me to become better than who I was. Thank you to Mrs. Salinas, Mrs. Drugan, and Mr. Drugan for showing me how much teachers care about their students and how much they’ll do to help them succeed. Thank you to Mr. Henderson who influenced my major more than anyone. There are so many other teachers I want to thank for making me the person I am today. Our teachers should always be appreciated because they are the ones who help shape us. THANKS KLEIN COLLINS AND GIG ‘EM!!!
