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.

andy-esquivelToday’s Champion is Andy Esquivel! Esquivel is an English IV teacher at Cedar Ridge High School. In the video, Michael Trevino, a student at Cedar Ridge High School, talks about why Mr. Esquivel is his champion. “He’s inspired me to become a better reader and writer. He can help you with any problems and will always make time for you,” said Trevino.

Thomas Hadley another student at the school also submitted a video about Mr. Esquivel. Hadley said “If other people see how Mr. E inspires his students to go beyond just classroom writing, and to become their own writers, they might also start clubs or set set up their own goals for writing.”


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.
