American Graduate Champion: Julissa Martinez

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 Julissa Martinez! Julissa Martinez is a student in Kyle, Texas. She is involved in her school’s science club and juggles school with a job at Tractor Supply Co. “Julissa is an outstanding friend and helps with me all my college applications,” her nomination form said. “Her dedication can motivate others.”

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.
