Meet a Texas Exes Scholar: Carly Brauer

What is your proudest accomplishment of your college career thus far and why?

I am most proud of my involvement in Young Life Capernaum, an outreach ministry for teens and young adults with special needs.I am continually inspired by my Capernaum friends and my involvement in this group has brought so much joy to my college career.

What’s one way that being a Texas Exes Scholar has changed you? 

Being a Texas Exes Scholar has given me the freedom to learn at an outstanding university while exploring the amazing city of Austin. Through Texas Exes, I have met many inspirational Longhorns, and I am truly grateful for the opportunities that being a Scholar has provided. My fellow Texas Exes Scholars constantly inspire me to do more, and I have loved getting to know them over the years.

What have you enjoyed most about being involved with the Texas Exes?

I love being a part of a group that has so much love and spirit for the University of Texas. Being involved with Texas Exes has taught me what it means to “bleed orange,” and I know that I will always be a Longhorn at heart–even long after graduation.

What has you the most excited for next year? Why?

I am ready to make the most of my last year at UT. Whether in class or at a football game, I plan on taking advantage of everything that the Forty Acres has to offer. The University of Texas has become my home away from home, and I can’t wait to see what my senior year will bring.

The Texas Exes Awards for Scholarship and Leadership have long been the Association’s most prestigious and generous scholarships. Today’s Texas Exes Scholars are tomorrow’s leaders. Learn more about the program here.
