Claire and Lance Silver
“Our two daughters graduated Paso High in 2006. Our daughter, Elaine Silver, was Valedictorian and her twin sister, Melanie Silver, was off just one grade from that highest honor. They both were accepted to Columbia University, majoring in Environmental Engineering and Civil Engineering/Architecture respectively. My husband and I are so very proud of our daughters and their accomplishments. We know that the genuine interest and challenges put forth by their instructor, Steve Kliewer, led them to their engineering majors and their goals. The camaraderie of the hands-on teams and the significance of their many projects and presentations served them well to get them to take the next big leap to engineering majors in the Ivy League. We are proudly attending their graduations this May.
Over the years, we have witnessed many students blossom through Steve Kliewer's teaching and the Endeavour Academy program's challenges. Our family supports Endeavour whole heartedly, hosting their big Balloonfest every year in May at our winery, Tobin James.
