Any favorite memories while in CISD?
One favorite memory is organizing The Woodlands High School student involvement in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Birdie’s for Charity Golf Tournament. We had the largest involvement in the Greater Houston Area and raised an unprecedented amount of money for a great cause! I actually started FCA at Knox in 7th grade and revived it at The Woodlands High School - at the time we were one of the largest clubs at TWHS and largest FCA groups in the Greater Houston Area.
Another favorite memory is coaching The Woodlands Hurricanes and later The Woodlands Waves. I swam for The Waves growing-up, so being able to coach while in high school and college was extremely fun and rewarding.
