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.
Today’s Champion is Megan Sheffield. Megan Sheffield is an immigration lawyer that has been advocating for undocumented students and families. Megan volunteers regularly to organize DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) educational forums and clinics. She often takes pro-bono cases and defends families. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “Her kindness and advocacy for immigrant families is an inspiration. Megan is a tireless advocate and makes a point to getting to know and build strong relationships with the families and students she helps.”
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.
