American Graduate Champion: Javier Hernandez

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.

policemanToday’s Champion is Javier Hernandez! Javier is the deputy sheriff at a middle school in Manor, Texas, and has served as a mentor to students in the community. “Ever since I met him in 6th grade, he’s been a mentor and he’s inspired me. He has always been a person that will help me out no matter what the situation is.” Check out the recommendation videos for more on Javier!

 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.
