American Graduate Champion: Marianne Wensmann

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 Marianne Wensmann! Marianne Wensmann is a teacher in Buda, Texas. She dedicates her time and energy to her students – she doesn’t just try to pass knowledge according to curriculum standards. “Mrs. Wensmann has helped me to be confident in my life choices, led me to discover my leadership skills, supported me whenever I felt crestfallen. Moreover, she helped me to overcome my language barrier as English is my third language. Besides this, she was first to sponsor YMCA Youth and Government Club at Hays High School,” 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.
