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.

susan-dawsonToday’s Champion is Susan Dawson. Dawson, Executive Director of E3 Alliance, is an advocate of educational excellence and data driven decision making for education system reform. The E3 Alliance has been at the forefront of raising awareness about the dropout crisis, contributing factors, and promising trends. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “The information which E3 presents should be understood by anyone who is trying to positively intervene in the lives of at risk youth.”

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.
