The people and the friendships my family and I have been able to make here at Karnes City have been unbelievable. My time working with students here at Karnes City ISD has been great. We have many fond memories of Karnes City and looking back on it, those are the things we cherish most. The memories we have of kids being successful here and being a part of their lives is truly an honor.”
