American Graduate Champion: Lacy Folsom

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 Lacy Folsom! Lacy Folsom teaches high school senior English and debate in Kyle, Texas. She cares about her students. Folsom “spend[s] many hours a day helping to prepare seniors before going in to the real world with skills that will be needed for the rest of their life[ves],” her nomination form said.

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.
