Today’s champion is Emmalee Day! Emmalee Day is a student at Bowie High School in Austin, Texas. She is a competitive cheerleader and pushes her teammates hard to keep up their skills. “Emma is a champion because she is one of the happiest, funniest and straight forward person I know. She gives the best advice and is always there to lend a helping hand,” her nomination form said. “I don’t know what I would do without her in my life.”

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.
