American Graduate Champion: Elizabeth Morales

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 Elizabeth Morales! Elizabeth Morales is a teacher and mother in Buda, Texas. She teaches fifth grade students. “This person is a champion to me because she is a wonderful hard working mother who takes sacrifices for others,” her nomination form said. Her story shows “there are always people who work hard and sacrifices for others,” the form continued.

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.
