Congratulations to Emma Foster and Rex Yee. What a great day to be an Aggie!!!! So proud of their accomplishments.
Congressmen Henry Cuellar stated that today was a day for the history books as no other school district of our size had 2 signing in the same year. Poteet ISD is extremely proud of both of these fine students. Congressmen Cuellar stated that nominees must participate in a lengthy review process that evaluates their academic history, leadership skills, extracurricular activities and personal accomplishments. He stated that "Every year, over 12,000 students meet the requirements for application in those academies and only 1000-1500 actually receive offers of appointment. Congratulations again to you both.
