Karnes City High School Valedictorian is Courtney Garcez, daughter of Domingo and Cynthia Garcez.

During her high school career, Courtney’s activities included being a member of the cross country, track, and golf teams for four years, a four-year member of the KCHS band, and three years in the National Honor Society.

Her most memorable moment was when she made it to regionals in the 3200m in track during her sophomore year. She recalled being in second to last on the last lap, but on the last 300 yards, she told herself she couldn’t quit. She pushed herself harder to try and make it into the top three, and ran her best race ever.

Courtney’s advice to younger students is to work hard and do what needs to be done. It will all pay off in the end. And never let anyone tell you that you can’t do anything. Harvey Fierstein once said, “Never be bullied into silence; never allow yourself to be made a victim; accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”

Her most influential person is her cross country and track coach, Coach Card, who was also her science teacher for three years. Coach Card taught Courtney to believe and have confidence in herself, as well as many constructive lessons during class. Through cross country and track she taught her perseverance.

Upon graduation, Courtney will attend the University of Texas at Austin to earn a Ph.D. in pharmacy.
