“Some of my best memories are a result of the time that I spent at KCHS – meeting my wife, playing sports, and developing friendships and lasting relationships,” recalled Robinson. “This community, its people, the schools are all great and what makes Karnes City what it is. While we as a community have our differences, when the dust settles, Karnes City will come together and support each other like the family that we are. I am proud to be a Badger and looking forward to a great year.”
