American Graduate Champion: Jodi Granado

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.

jodi-granadoToday’s Champion is Jodi Granado. Granado, a teacher of GED prep at SW Key Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program, works tirelessly to get youth back on their feet after setbacks. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “As an educator, she knows that some educational success will help breed further success for individuals, and that will have ripple effects in their lives. As a caring, wonderful person, she knows that often times, the kids she serves are longing for stable, long-term support from adults in their lives.”

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.
