American Graduate Champion: Ever Calderon

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 Ever Calderon! Ever Calderon is a father in Kyle, Texas. In addition to being a father, Calderon is a sheet metal worker, hard worker, and a wise man. “My father encourages my brother, sister and I to reach higher goals than what was given to him as a youth. He loves us and my mom no matter what,” his nomination form said. “He inspires my family members and [me] to work for what you have and learning is the key to success.”

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.
