American Graduate Champion: Nolan Ferree

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 Nolan Ferree! Nolan Ferree is a senior student at Cedar Ridge High School in Round Rock, Texas. In addition to his regular courses, Ferree is a Varsity basketball player, a personal basketball trainer, a mentor and a tutor. His nominator said Ferree helped them in many aspects of their life, including academics, basketball and generally doing the right thing. “Any person can be your champion and any body can be beneficial to yourself,” his nomination form said. “Many people look for champions as dads, or moms but sometimes the champion is the friend right next to you.”

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.
