Angel Vanterpool II surprised by KPRC’s Ruben Galvan during morning pep rally

FORT BEND ISD - KPRC feature reporter Ruben Galvan visited Missouri City Middle School and surprised a student with a special honor during an early morning pep rally recently – and it was all broadcast on live television. Eighth-grade student Angel Vanterpool II was named “Ruben’s Student of the Week” and received prizes that included a trophy, t-shirt, and a SONY digital video camera.

During the month of November, KPRC honored deserving students who were nominated by their principals. Missouri City Middle School Principal Jerrie Kammerman nominated Vanterpool and listed his many accomplishments to Galvan and KPRC viewers on the morning of November 19.

“This student is super involved in campus activities,” said Kammerman. “He participates in Kick Start, football, and the track team. He’s part of the National Junior Honor Society, he’s an A/B Honor Roll student, and he’s taken two college credit classes. He’s just a phenomenal kid and a great role model and is respected by the staff and the kids.”

Vanterpool also addressed viewers after Galvan announced he was the “Student of the Week” recipient.

“Thank you for letting me be your Student of the Week,” said Vanterpool, as he looked into the camera. “I am very honored, and I would like to thank my parents, my teachers, and my principal.”

Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre attended the morning pep rally and expressed pride for Fort Bend ISD and its students.

“We have outstanding students, and we have outstanding staff,” said Dupre. “In Fort Bend ISD, we exist to inspire and equip all students to pursue futures beyond what they can imagine. The staff at Missouri City Middle School exemplifies that, and Angel is an outstanding product of this school, along with all of these students here.”

Prior to Vanterpool being named “Student of the Week,” Galvan highlighted several of the MCMS school organizations, including its sports teams, band, and choir. Members of the school groups woke up early to participate in the event. Following the broadcast, the campus provided breakfast to all of the participants, with Dr. Dupre taking the time to personally serve many of the students their meal.
