To help coordinate and communicate about special events, reunions, and to better serve you, we have started to create a comprehensive database of our alum and Central community. Please take a minute to fill out this form and forward the link to any current students, alumni, parents of students (current or past), and community members. We appreciate your help in making this project a success.
Is your class organizing a reunion? Let us know and we can share the date and other information on our Facebook page and in these monthly emails. Consider donating to the Saint Paul Central Foundation to celebrate your milestone and time together at Central! Your contribution, of any size, will help Central students attend college or other post-secondary institutions. You can set up your own fundraising page through our giving portal (GiveLively) by choosing the “I want to fundraise for this” button. If you have questions about fundraising for your class, email us at email@example.com.
Name: Liz Kramer
Job/position: Solicitor General, State of Minnesota
Central class/year: Class of 1992
College/grad schools: Mount Holyoke College 1996 (politics/economics); Yale Law School 2002
Favorite thing about your job: I have so many favorite things about my job! Getting to work with Attorney General Ellison, getting to argue cases of statewide impact in front of the highest state and federal courts, winning cases for great clients like Governor Walz and Secretary of State Simon, and giving opportunities to the next generations of amazing lawyers who are coming up in public service.
One way that Central has impacted you: I had amazing teachers at Central and was well-prepared academically for any challenge. Maybe more importantly, though, has been the impact of the diverse student body. Both during and since high school, my classmates have helped me feel more grounded in our community, challenged my assumptions, and exposed me to new ideas.
One piece of advice for current Central students: Try things that make you uncomfortable! I spoke at our high school graduation and was insanely nervous. Now I speak at the Minnesota Supreme Court regularly and look forward to being in that spotlight.
