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 Kimberlee Jackson! Kimberlee Jackson is a mother in Buda, Texas. She supports her two children and refuses to give up on them and puts her family’s needs before her own. Even though she can’t make all of her children’s competitions, she always supports them.
“She always has a smile on her face and that smile soon spreads through out the family. She is the best person to call a mother and any one would be more than lucky to have such an amazing woman as their own mommy,” the nomination form said. “All mothers have made sacrifices for their gamily, and they are also the best superheroes to have in your life. We all learn and look up to our mothers, and we all appreciate what they do for us every day.”
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.
