American Graduate Champion: Jon Bailey

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.

jon_bailey1Today’s Champion is Jon Bailey. Bailey is the assistant principal at Gus Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy and works with students, staff, and parents. He also encourages students with the drumline and pushes students to do well and be responsible. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “Other would benefit to know that there is someone out there that is teaching us what it means to be a young man. How to be responsible, good, and a future leader.”

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.
