American Graduate Champion: Brenda Key

LRU 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 Brenda Key! Brenda Key is a fifth grade teacher and mother in Round Rock, Texas. She supports her oldest child, an academically disabled high school student. She helps her child surmount the disorders that cause them difficulty studying, ADHD among them. Key stays patient, and actively works to help her child overcome her academic disabilities. “Brenda has and does dedicate her time to helping her child cope with the disability and overcome it,” 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.
