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.

allison-richToday’s Champion is Allison Rich. Rich is a University of Texas Student majoring in Mechanical Engineering and is a Robotics Mentor for girls who are in The Lady Cans, an all girls robotics team located in the greater Austin area. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “Allison is my mentor and she has helped me gain more confidence, improve my leadership skills, and helped me figure out what I want to do when I get older. She also encourages me to pursue what I love.”

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.
