AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY
American Graduate Day 2014 showcased communities, educators and champions from across the nation who are committed to tackling the nation’s dropout crisis and helping more students achieve a high school diploma. On September 27, local public media stations across the showcase showcased seven hours worth of coverage addressing a number of topics such as early education, mentoring, career readiness and college preparation, after school programs and dropout re-engagement.
Throughout that day, viewers and online users could ask questions, share ideas and engage in a healthy live exchange through social media using #AmGrad, which can be seen on the right-hand side. In addition, viewers can recognize someone who is an American Graduate Champion in their life or the lives of others in the community.
