News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion Karis Jochen. The A&M Consolidated High School senior has a 4.4 Grade Point Average, and currently ranks in the top ten percent of her class.
Karis is a member of the Lady Tiger cross country and track teams.
She's one of two Gatorade Athletes of the Year that signed a national letter of intent with the Texas A&M track program last month. This past Fall Karis successfully defended her Class 5A Cross Country State title and placed fifth nationally at both the Nike and Foot Locker competitions.
Karis is as strong a competitor in the class room as she is on the track. She's an AP Scholar, member of the Brazos Valley Symphony Belles, Youth Leadership Council, and the Youth Advisory Council. Karis is also active at her church and in her community.
Karis will be attending Texas A&M University and majoring in business. She's been accepted to study in the prestigious honors program of the Mays Business School.
Congratulations to Karis Jochen of A&M Consolidated High School.
