2013 American Graduate Day
For the second year in a row, American Graduate Day 2013, will premiere live Saturday, marking a long term commitment to helping communities tackle the nation's dropout crisis and preparing students for success with a high school diploma. Through the power and reach of public media, communities across the county will be invited to take an active role and become an "American Graduate Champion" for local youth by volunteering their time, talent, or other resources.
