CLHS Senior Emily Clark Honored
Canyon Lake High School student Emily Clark was honored at the Comal Education Foundation’s Jan Heckendorn Academic Recognition Banquet May 16 at McKenna Events Center in New Braunfels.
The top 15 seniors at Canyon, Smithson Valley and Canyon Lake high schools, as well as the top five seniors from Memorial Early College High School, were recognized at the event.
Students invited a teacher, counselor or administrator they felt was very influential during their academic career. Each wrote a short essay, explaining why they choose to honor that individual.
Clark invited CLHS Coach Kayla Cochran.
Rusty Brockman, of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, emceed the event. He read each essay as the students and their honoree walked across the stage and the Comal Education Foundation Board members and executives from event sponsor Wells Fargo Bank congratulated them.
Founded in 2001, the Comal Education Foundation (CEF) awards funding to all schools in the Comal Independent School District, providing much needed-resources to enrich student learning experiences that fall outside the district’s operating budget.
