Today’s champion is Bonnie Bosarge! Bonnie Bosarge is a counselor at Jack C. Hays High School in Buda, Texas. She leads students down the path of success by helping with a plan for graduation for more than 500 seniors, whether for college, junior college, trade school or military. “She volunteers and works tirelessly for all of the students and staff,” Bosarge’s nomination form said. “She has overcome numerous obstacles: flood, painful divorce, heart attack, and abuse – yet always puts her students first.”

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.
