An American Graduate Champion commits his or her time, skills and resources to make sure young people succeed.
Meet five people who are doing just that here in the Nashville area:
Carol Cubillo-Seals started a fundraising drive to provide college scholarships to Latino students who graduate high school.
Dr. Ron Woodard is making an impact on college opportunities for students at Maplewood High School, where he is principal.
Dr. Deborah Smith is a middle school math teacher who serves as a mentor and role model to girls interested in STEM classes and careers.
Khalat Hama is a Kurdish Achievers volunteer who encourages Kurdish youth, especially girls, to stay in school.
