National Leaders







"American Graduate is a wonderful program! I am committed to doing whatever I can to help students stay in school and graduate. When students start school in pre-K or kindergarten, they do not begin with the mindset of dropping out; we, as parents, educators, and leaders, have to do something about that.”

--Rueben McDaniel, Chair, Atlanta Board of Education (WPBA Atlanta, GA)
