Congratulations to XHS teachers, Mr. Duane Schulte and Mr. Mike Goldsmith who will each receive a $1,000 grant for classroom supplies as part of the Big 12 Conference / College Football Playoff Foundation Extra Yard For Teachers program and their contributions as outstanding educators!
Coach Schulte and Mr. Goldsmith were nominated for the grants by XHS alumnus/senior longsnapper for the Kansas State University football team, Drew Scott (X13). Drew was a former walk-on for Kansas State and eventually earned a scholarship. He was among the Big 12 student-athletes featured in the conference’s “Champions for Life” campaign. This campaign features student-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the field, and have benefitted from receiving an athletic scholarship. Each student-athlete featured in the campaign was given the opportunity to nominate a teacher or teachers who made a lasting impact on them during their academic journey.
Congratulations to Coach Schulte and Mr. Goldsmith for making a lifelong positive impact on our Saints and thank you, Drew, for sharing that impact with the world! Good luck to you and the Wildcats this season!
