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 Tracy Harris! Tracy Harris is a teacher in Buda, Texas. She teaches first grade students. “When I finished first grade I was far behind the other kids and barely knew how to read and she would pick me up from daycare during the summer and teach me free of charge,” her nomination form said. Her story teaches people “to be nice out of the kindness in their hearts and not expect anything in return,” the form continued.
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.
