GRADUATION: Karnes City Valedictorian
Jeremy Purser was selected as the valedictorian of the Karnes City High School class of 2011. Jeremy is the son of Sharon and David Purser. After graduation, he plans to attend Texas A&M University in College Station.
With a planned major in forensic science, Jeremy hopes to go on to medical school after receiving his bachelor’s degree.
Jeremy said he may take one or two classes this summer to help ease into the transition from high school to life at a major university.
Jeremy was active in many different sports during his years at Karnes City High School, including football, basketball, track, and tennis. His extracurricular activities were not restricted to sports, though, as he also participated in UIL academic events including science and math events.
When asked what moments are most memorable from his years at KCHS, Jeremy said there were many -- especially during this, his senior year, but he said his experiences on the track relay team this year were among the most exciting moments he will remember.
Jeremy expressed thanks and gratitude to his mom, who he said was always there for help in navigating scholarship applications as well as the many other challenges he faced this year.
