San Antonio, TX – May 2, 2012 – Kaitlyn Goertz, a graduating senior from John Marshall High School and an AQUAS (Assistance for Qualified Undergraduate Athletic Students) student athlete has given her verbal commitment to attend Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas this fall.

Because of Kaitlyn’s hard work and dedication, both in the classroom and on the basketball court, 44 colleges throughout the United States had displayed an interest in having her attend their University. These colleges ranged from NCAA Division I – Division III schools as well as NAIA colleges across the country. Kaitlyn’s goal is to study at a university where, upon graduation, she can have a meaningful degree while at the same time making a difference in the college’s basketball program. She feels she has found everything she wants in a university, at Schreiner.

Schreiner was founded in 1923 by Capt. Charles Schreiner, a former Texas Ranger and Hill country rancher. Originally a boys school it became coeducational in 1971. A junior college in those years. Schreiner strengthened its collegiate program and became a four-year institution in 1981 and graduated their first baccalaureate class three years later. One of the finest liberal arts colleges in the Western United States, Kaitlyn feels that this is where she can get her education to fulfill her dream of helping children through coaching or teaching in the future.

Lorena Contreras, VP of AQUAS, stated that,” Kaitlyn is certainly a great basketball player. But in addition, her dedication to her studies, her outstanding grades throughout her high school career and her excellent performance on the ACT opened so many collegiate doors for this young lady. Her hard work has been rewarded!”

AQUAS is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is identifying underprivileged high school athletes that have demonstrated high academic performance. These students may not have received much national visibility, for a number of reasons, and thus college coaches are not aware of their skills. AQUAS overcomes that problem as it puts these selected students in front of the colleges athletic departments until the right academic and athletic match are found.
