Graduation 2014

In the past few days, more than 2,000 graduating seniors 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!

On Saturday, May 31, and Monday, June 2, an estimated 2,014 seniors attended graduation ceremonies. Four high schools sponsored May 31 graduations, and a separate graduation was held on the evening of June 2 for Westchester Academy graduates and their families.

In all, SBISD seniors have been offered more than $20 million in scholarships to pursue technical certification, two-year or four-degree programs at local colleges and universities nationwide.
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.

SBISD’s Board of Trustees, leadership, educators and staff are tremendously proud of this year’s many graduates. Congratulations to the Class of 2014!
