American Graduate

American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is a long term public media commitment, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), to help communities implement solutions to the high school dropout crisis.

Public media plays a significant role building individual activity, community capacity, and national awareness.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting is rising to the challenge, and doing our part to address this problem. 

  • Stories of Champions. We will profile three West Virginians who have made a difference in the field of STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.) Their stories will be airedon web, radio and television.
  • West Virginia STEAM Summit. Coming in November, this one hour special will discuss what works in STEAM education in West Virginia.  In partnership with The Education Alliance, the summit will be streamed live on and highlights will be available on our TV and Radio channels.
  • West Virginia STEAM videos. We are producing six videos with accompanying curriculum, designed to inspire middle school students through telling the story of young West Virginians in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.
