The Clear Creek Independent School District is home to 130 academic superstars. These graduating seniors earned 95 or higher in their classes over the course of their four years in high school. The students were recognized by Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools, during a special dinner at South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center. In his remarks, Dr. Greg Smith told the students that they maximized every minute and every opportunity in high school. "I have no doubt in ten years from now you will look back on your high school years and not say, “I wish I had” but rather “I am glad I had.” This statement has less to do with your GPA and more to do with what you discovered about yourself in the last four years. To sustain this momentum it required the Courage to take the more rigorous route, Collaboration with your peers and teachers to problem solve, Innovation especially when it came to time management, and definitely a great deal of Self-Direction. To have the right balance of those 21st century skills is the formula for success."
