American Graduate Champion: Kara Barfield’s Friends

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.

KaraandFriendToday’s Champions are Kara Barfield’s friends! This video shows Kara Barfield, a student at Cedar Ridge High School, and why her friends are her champions. “My friends have all inspired me to go to school and gave me the strength to push myself further. Not only did they encourage me, they made me find my love for school again.” Watch the video to find out more!

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.
