BRYAN, Texas -- With the the 2013-2014 school year winding down, KBTX Media and Blinn College hosted the 19th annual Classroom Champions Banquet Wednesday night at Christopher's World Grille.
32 of this year's 34 Classroom Champions were in attendance.
KBTX General Manager Mike Wright, along with Sylvia McMullen, president of Blinn College in Bryan, congratulated the students athletes on their accomplishments both on the field and in the classroom.
Texas A&M All American Swimmer and 2012 Olympian Breeja Larson was the featured speaker and passed along some sound advice to the soon to be college freshman.
"Don't let money, your friends, don't let anyone stop you from achieving your dreams," said Larson.
"You have to do what you love, not what your parents love. Whether it be music, sports, or academics. Just really, really chase after your dreams," concluded Larson.
To date KBTX Media has crowned 637 Classroom Champions with the first one being Amy Gregory from Centerville High School back in 1995.
