Canyon High School graduate Kyleigh Murphy was one of four Comal ISD valedictorians for the 2018-19 school year.



All four valedictorians from Comal ISD high schools will be featured on digital billboards in the San Antonio area through the month of August, according to a district press release.


In a partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor San Antonio, valedictorians Kyleigh Murphy, from Canyon High School; Audrey Schulze from Canyon Lake High School; Chandler Nolte from Memorial Early College High School; and Luke Estes from Smithson Valley High School will have their photo displayed, along with a congratulatory message.

“These students are a visual representation of our commitment to every one of our students to go beyond the classroom and achieve their best in life,” CISD Superintendent Andrew Kim said. “We are proud to have these students represent Comal ISD, and we are appreciative of our partnership with Clear Channel to allow us to feature them.”

CISD totaled 1,492 graduates for the 2018-19 school year.

“This is just one way that we can give back to the community,” said Luis de al Torre, president and general manager of Clear Channel Outdoor San Antonio. “We are honored to promote the academic achievements of these local students.”
