Our mission is to provide resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and enhance opportunities for students enrolled in Katy ISD.

Katy Half Marathon 5K 1K
 Katy, TX
February 2, 2019

The weekend of February 2, 2019, I will be participating in the Katy Half-Marathon 5K 1K Run supporting the Katy ISD Education Foundation. This will be my first time doing this event (first time actually doing an official run of any kind), and I am so excited to be participating in the event with my fellow teammates from Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union. 

BVSCU has been actively supporting education in our community since being founded in 1954. I personally graduated from a Katy school as well as two of my children have and I have one still in Katy schools. As part of the BVSCU, it has been an honor to have an active role within the Katy ISD community. 

The Katy Half-Marathon 5K 1K provides me and fellow colleagues an opportunity to raise money for the Katy ISD Education Foundation. The money raised will be used to provide resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning and enhance opportunities for students enrolled in Katy ISD.

"The Katy ISD Education Foundation serves as a catalyst for extraordinary teachers to create extraordinary classroom experiences for their students.

Imagine a classroom

  … that swaps exercise balls for desk chairs.
  … populated by 16-year-old scientists in safety goggles & lab coats.
  … where dirt, mulch & broccoli replace concrete, carpet & worksheets.
  … combining entrepreneurship & environmentalism.
Imagine a classroom
  … where every dream is a possibility.
  … where extraordinary behaviors are the norm.
  … where opportunities are inspired by imagination.
  … where the creative reality of one changes the trajectory of thousands.
Imagine a community that makes all that happen."

Please consider supporting me in this fund raising campaign for teacher grants. Your contribution will provide immeasurable benefit to our remarkable students. Thank You for your support!
