American Graduate Champion: Emily Berger

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 Emily Berger! Emily Berger is a student in Buda, Texas. She participates in many clubs, including Leo Club, G-Force Officers, and the National Honor Society. Though she isn’t sure what major she wants to pursue, Berger took advantage of dual-credit courses offered at her high school to get a step ahead. “Emily is a dedicated student, who values her education, and is willing to do anything to help those around her. Emily is very outgoing, and always does whatever she can to make sure that she achieves her goals,” her nomination form said.

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.
