American Graduate

American Graduate Day 2015 was one of the largest collaborative broadcasts in the public television history. On October 3, 2015, this live, seven-hour national broadcast celebrated individuals and non-profit organizations dedicated to helping youth stay on track to high school graduation. More than 50 public television stations across the country, including KNPB, contributed original content to the program.

Divided into seven hour-long content strands, topics included: Early Education, Caring Consistent Adults, More and Better Learning, Special Needs Communities, Dropout Prevention and Re-Engagement, and College and Career Readiness. Each hour featured compelling live and taped interviews, live remote panels across the nation, mini-documentaries and celebrity testimonials.
