American Graduate Champion: Jason Ferrel

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 Jason Ferrel! Jason Ferrel is a teacher and coach in Buda, Texas. He teaches geography and economics. He is a champion “because of the way that he approaches things and the ways that he treats his students,” 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.
