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 Travis Loy! Travis Loy is a high school physics teacher in Buda, Texas. He aids students by improving their knowledge every day he goes to work. “He was able to help many of his students pass an Advanced Placement Physics test that the entire nation was not prepared for. However, this is not all that makes Travis Loy a Champion. He is able to connect with his students on an emotional level, and is able to help his students not only in physics, but also in life,” his 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.
