August Wunderlich Named Alumni Of The Month For November
Few Klein ISD employees can claim a rise through the ranks to surpass that of Mr. August Wunderlich.
Mr. Wunderlich is a proud Klein ISD alumni and has made strides to show he is deserving of the honor to be recognized as the Klein ISD Alumni of the Month.
“August represents the absolute best of our Klein Family, not only because of his deep roots in the Klein community but also because of the integrity, care, and commitment to excellence he exemplifies each day,” Superintendent Dr Jenny McGown said.
August grew up on a local truck farm where present-day Doerre Intermediate is located which he describes as “Old McDonald’s Farm.”
He has been known to tell stories of nursing farm animals back to life in the house that he lived in.
August learned to love agriculture from his dad while serving as President of Klein High FFA.
“As most of you know, I am a proud member of one of the founding families of this great community and grew up on a farm much like Old McDonald’s farm.
Fortunately my future career all started with a part-time co-op job during my junior year at Klein High School,” August continued.
“I’m living proof that this school district treats its employees like family and allows for growth to fulfil your dreams.”
At the age of sixteen, as part of a high school co-op program, he was employed as a custodian by Klein ISD and assigned to the district administration building.
He continued working for the district and remained on a part-time basis during college.
August is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Sam Houston State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Education.
His mid-management certification is from Texas A&M University, and he is a Registered Texas School Business Official.
