The Karnes City ISD Education Foundation is comprised of business and community leaders who have a connection to Karnes City ISD and a common desire for promoting its excellence in education. Proceeds help fund innovative classroom grants, a Senior Celebration at the end of the school year, a long-term endowment for the school district, a fun Science and Math Camp for all four Karnes County school district students to attend, and last but not least, the proposed Coastal Bend College Eagle Ford Technology Center to train all students in the county that wish to work in the oil and gas industry.
“The success of the foundation cannot happen without the wonderful businesses and individuals in our community who want to make a difference in education by financially supporting our fundraising activities,” Williams said.
