American Graduate Champion: Deborah Moore

LRU 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 Deborah Moore! Deborah Moore is a mom, teacher, behavior specialist, 4-H leader and communitry activist in Kyle, Texas. She juggles dedicating her time to school, family, community activities and work. “Not only does she deal with a lot at school with her students and handle it well, she also has to come home and deal with my brother and [me] the rest of the time, so she never gets a break but she handles it like a champion,” her nomination form said. “People who are going through a rough time and don’t think they can get through it they would have this story to look at and know that they could do it.”

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.
