American Graduate Champion: Joye Ardrey

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 Joye Ardrey! Joye Ardrey is a teacher in Round Rock, Texas. Ardrey teaches the class of future teachers at the Cedar Ridge High School Academy of Public Services. She leads a group of student leaders and mentors in her curriculum classes, which include Principles of Education and Training, Child Development and Child Guidance. “She is giving students hands on experience as a teacher and a mentor and giving them the tools they need to teach the kids well,” 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.
