Christy Schrader, Class of 2013

Pepperdine University in Malibu
Christy Schrader is taking on Pepperdine and the world as she works toward becoming a Royal Albert British Ambassador Scholar in London.

While pursuing a business degree from Pepperdine University, Christy is exploring various opportunities around the globe. She recently finished a semester in Washington, D.C., where she interned in the Office of Congressman Michael McCaul. Then she hopped across the pond to study in London, where she is pursuing a Royal Albert British Ambassador Scholar appointment by participating in a UK homestay program and volunteering for a UK charity.

A go-getter from an early age, Christy won the Top GPA Award while a student at Saint Gabriel’s Catholic School. She says it was at St. Gabriel’s where she “grew up and where [she] began to strive for excellence.”

“From my time at SGCS, I remember most the sense of a loving community and the push to achieve our dreams. I will always remember the words to St. Gabriel's Wings and how it exemplifies the work of the community at SGCS to help each child soar.”
St. Gabriel's Catholic School is an Independent Catholic school in Austin TX, educating children in preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school.
