Spring ISD is showcasing its Top 10 graduates at each of its high schools with a special page designed to highlight their accomplishments, future plans and the most influential teachers they encountered during their educational journeys.
“It’s extremely gratifying to be able to shine the light on these amazing students who have really made the most of their high school experience by not only doing well in the classroom, but by also taking part in community service and extracurricular activities,” said Spring ISD Superintendent Dr. Rodney E. Watson. “The fact they were able to rank among the Top 10 at their campus is a reflection of their hard work and commitment. I’m confident they will all be successful as they move on to college and careers.”
All of the students are profiled on the Spring ISD website at www.springisd.org/top10. Visitors to the page can search by school to learn more about each of the students.
In his bio, Daelyn Williams, who is graduating seventh in his class from Dekaney High School, cited the positive influence of a middle school teacher from Twin Creeks.
“Mr. Younger taught me the importance of being myself and chasing my dreams no matter what others think or say,” he wrote. This fall, Williams is planning to attend Lamar University on a full athletic scholarship so he can pursue his goal of playing in the NFL and one day becoming a head football coach.
At Westfield High School, Sabrina Fuentes credits her English teacher, Tracey Waller, for helping build her confidence. “She made me feel smart, powerful and cared for,” Fuentes wrote in her bio. “Ms. Waller was my helping hand, my shoulder to cry on, and I owe much of my success to her.”
Fuentes, who is also graduating seventh in her class, is planning to pursue a degree in psychology from the University of Texas at San Antonio to become a psychologist or an elementary school teacher.
