American Graduate Champion: Julie McCann

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 Julie McCann! Julie McCann is a special education teacher in Buda, Texas. She is passionate about her work and devoted to her students. “Her dedication towards providing an education to students whom may require extra attention and care not only demonstrates the kindness of her heart, but also portrays the champion within her,” her nomination form said. “It is truly inspiring being able to witness the work Mrs. McCann does with the special education department. Her personal connection with each student is undeniable.”

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.
