KRCB is proud to recognize the contributions of these wonderful individuals who go above and beyond to help a student, classroom, or community succeed–
setting high expectations, building and finding effective supports, and helping a student make the successful journey from preschool to high school graduation.
“American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen” is public media’s long-term commitment to supporting community-based solutions to the dropout crisis. Supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), more than 100 public radio and television stations have joined forces with over 1,400 partners and at-risk schools across 40 states.
KRCB North Bay Public Media is one of the stations chosen from around the nation to participate in uncovering American Graduate Champions from our community and reporting on their work and contributions to education in the North Bay region. Through TV, Radio, the Web and at a special recognition event, KRCB will introduce the public to these unsung heroes of education in Sonoma County.

KRCB is proud to partner with students from Cloverdale High School and Roseland University Prep in the creation of these unique interviews with folks in their respective communities. The students, who have all been trained in listening and interviewing techniques by the Sonoma County organization Listening For A Change ( http://listeningforachange.org )were charged with identifying individuals in their community with whom they would explore questions such as What do you like about our town? What do you wish we could change? How has it changed since you’ve lived here? Who has power in our community? and so on. This series of 10 short videos is the result.
Many thanks to all of the students participating as well as the teachers and administrators who worked with us to make it happen. The videos will also appear on KRCB, Channel 22 throughout the summer and into the Fall. In Cloverdale they will be posted on the Mobile History Museum Kiosk.
