WAIS Graduating Class of 2014

In the past few days, more than 2,000 graduating seniors from Spring Branch ISD have walked across the stage at Don Coleman Coliseum, highlighting with a few steps one of their “life” moments in which years of growth, learning and achievement are capped off by celebration and embracing the future.

For all graduates, their families and the entire Spring Branch ISD community, it has been a Saturday and a Monday evening to remember, one filled with enormous pride and tearful moments of joy! Graduation ceremonies were streamed live on the district website, and images of the day were posted online and through a variety of social media.

In special remarks, Superintendent of Schools Duncan F. Klussmann, Ed.D., told graduates to focus on the journey ahead. He urged them to be a part of the district and community goal to double the number of graduates who complete some form of higher education or technical certification. This district goal is known as T-2-4.

“The success of our school district is not in how well you do while you are with us, but how well you do when you leave us,” he stated. SBISD’s commitment extends past Graduation Day.

Dr. Klussmann told graduates that they will receive a letter from the school district soon asking them to remain in touch, but also providing all graduates with a phone directory for key staff from the district and their high schools to help them directly should issues or questions arise in the weeks or years ahead.
Westchester Academy's Graduation was held on the evening of June 2. 
In addition to a variety of scholarships awarded from a variety of schools and organizations, including over $1 million awarded to the 24 seniors in Collegiate Challenge, the Westchester Alumni Association awarded scholarships to multiple seniors of the Class of 2014. 

Graduates from the WAIS class of 2014 received acceptances to schools to a wide range of schools, including, but not limited to, American University, Baylor, Carleton College, Colorado School of Mines, Culinary Institute of America, LSU, Oklahoma State, Rhodes College, Rice, Swarthmore, Texas A&M, Texas State, UT, University of Arkansas, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, & Wesleyan among others.
