    American Graduate: Let's Make it Happen is a national public media initiative designed to raise awareness around the high school dropout crisis and improve educational opportunities and outcomes for children and youth. A key part of the iniative focuses on recognizing, celebrating, sharing and showing the good work being done in Maryland to help keep students on a positive path toward high school graduation. Through MPT's American Graduate Champions program, we shine the spotlight on these dedicated individuals for making a meaningful difference in the lives of others!
