American Graduate Champion: Sara Parriott

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 Sara Parriott! Sarah Parriott is a business teacher and tutor in Round Rock, Texas. Parriott went out of her way to help a first-generation Latino student finish high school. “Inspired, always be close with your teachers because they always can help you especially graduate or any struggles you’re facing,” 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.
