Although 2015 is winding down, several public media stations involved in American Graduate have hosted a number of programs and events in relation to their work. Check out what's happened recently.

  • Mississippi Public Broadcast hosted its annual “Stop the Drop” Summit on December 15. The summit focuses on educating its community on dropout prevention methods while engaging students on the importance of graduating and becoming informed, productive citizens. During the summit, they also recognized their Champion of the Year, Dak Prescott, who will act as an ambassador for MPB’s American Graduate work throughout 2016.

  • ThinkTV hosted a public affairs program titled “The Power of Preschool” which took a look at the concept of universal preschool, how other cities have successfully mounted initiatives, and what a Preschool Promise program could look like in the Dayton region. Watch the program on their website.
