American Graduate Champion: Maria Nesloney

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 Maria Nesloney! Maria Nesloney is a Language Arts teacher in Rockport, Texas. She is a helpful teacher with good advice. “She was always my go to listener. She gives the best advice. Without having met her, my life would be completely different. I am happy to have met her,” 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.
