Sixty years in the making: Kolter’s strong, tight-knit community!
When we looked over newspaper articles and old photos while preparing for Kolter’s 60th anniversary, we were struck by a running theme of a deep-rooted community. A community that supports one another like family, and faces challenges with grace and strength. A community that is resilient and proud, with a long history of support and involvement. While the devastation of Hurricane Harvey brought our school community together in ways we never would have imagined, we found that our “We’re All In This Together” motto has been the sentiment since Kolter first began. From neighbors taking in children seeking shelter from a fire at Kolter to welcoming Kolter’s first African American teacher to serving the community with Kolter’s garden, the love and values at Kolter have always shined through. Over the last 60 years, the Kolter community time and time again has shown our children what it means to be “A Cougar Who Cares.”
Below are some of the inspiring stories of Kolter’s community we wanted to share. Here’s to 60 more wonderful years, Kolter!
