American Graduate Champion: David Keils

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.


Today’s champion is David Keils! David Keils is a high school student and football player in Buda, Texas. Keils juggles school, football and a job at The Salt Lick. “He is a high school football player with a big heart,” his nomination form said. “He is a great friend and is kind to everyone. ”

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.
