American Graduate Champion: Alexus Robinson

KLRU shares the inspiring stories of the people that are making our community a success! As part of our American Graduate initiative, we’re honoring American Graduate Champions that have been submitted by the community.

alexus-robinsonToday’s Champion is Alexus Robinson. Robinson, a Student at Eastside Memorial High School, is an active member of her school’s Student Ambassadors program, Choir, Student Council, Velocity Prep Program and Panther Passion Club. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “Her commitment to see positive change at her school is infectious to her peers and others. One cannot stand idly by Alexus and not feel the desire to want to make a difference in the world. Champions are defined by their legacy, what they leave behind for others. It is safe to say that she will leave a legacy for all to live and learn by. Our society can only be filled with hope for the future with young champions like Alexus leading the way. Age is irrelevant when the passion to make a difference trumps the status quo.”

Do you know someone in our community who is working to improve high school success for students throughout Central Texas? Recognize them as an American Graduate Champion! American Graduate Champions can be students who work as mentors, business leaders who serve as role models, school officials making changes to better the system, parent activists, and even struggling students who are overcoming obstacles in order to graduate.
