DHS Students Serve as Moderators for Community Forum

Sharif               Chief Brown              Malia


Two DHS Youth and Government students, Sharif Long and Malia Clayton, tested the skills they have developed with public speaking and debate this week when they served as moderators at a community forum. Sharif and Malia were moderators Wednesday night at a Youth Forum at Community Missionary Baptist Church in DeSoto where they asked questions of a panel of police chiefs. Duncanville Police Chief Robert Brown was one of the panelists addressing the youngsters’ questions about public safety and the community concerns regarding officers’ use of force. Sharif and Malia are both sophomores at Duncanville High School and did a great job representing the school district.
