Katie Eager Memorial Endowment
Established in the year 2015

The Katie Eager Memorial Endowment was created to honor her memory. A 2009 Pine Tree graduate, Katie was a very active student from Kindergarten through her senior year. She participated in band 6th-9th grade where she was a majorette and drum major. While she loved band, she also wanted to dance for the PT Precision Drill Team. It was a tough decision but Katie chose drill team and became a Precision lieutenant her junior year and captain her senior year. Katie was a true leader which she exhibited in all the extracurricular activities she was involved in. She was a Section Editor for the Pine Tree yearbook, a member of the Spanish Club, a team leader for Z-Club, a member of Student Council, active in Schools for Schools and Where Were you in ’42? Her academic honors included being awarded the Academic Achievement Award, the Elks Lodge Student of the Month, and a Globe Scholar. After high school, she continued her education at UT Tyler and UT Austin where she graduated with a Human Development and Family Sciences degree in 2012. Katie always excelled at whatever she did. She loved life, lived it to the fullest and made every moment count. She embraced her uniqueness and always encouraged others to do the same and above all else, to just be themselves. Her family, friends, and even strangers could feel the love that Katie radiated. While her life here on earth was cut incredibly short, her memory and legacy will continue with the help of this endowment. Katie loved the arts, so this endowment will specifically fund arts-related grants and opportunities for the current students of PTISD. “Our life is short. Make it a point to touch lives and hearts. Channel your energy to that which matters. Make it worth it.”
The Pine Tree family champions the relentless pursuit of excellence through a compassionate and safe learning environment empowering all students to develop their unique passions and to make a positive impact in a global society.
