American Graduate Champion: Leslie Decker

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 Leslie Decker! Leslie Decker is a teacher in Round Rock, Texas. Decker is a high school language teacher. She helped one student work through his learning difficulties to become successful. “People will be inspired by the amazing work the teacher has done with the students and how encouragements can change a person’s life by a tremendous amount,” 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.
