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.

doni-whitlowToday’s Champion is Doni Whitlow! Doni is a mother in Richmond, Texas. She has helped her son develop into the player that he has become, on and off the field.

Her son, Markail Caron, says, “Single mothers are some of the strongest people in the world and can even be heroes.”

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.
