Youth and Government Students Receive Business Wear for Competition

Youth and Government students receive new suits for competition



Students from Duncanville High School's chapter of Youth and Government (YAG) received a gift to help them prepare for their future.

JCPenney partnered with the YMCA to sponsor a 'Clothing for Success Shopping Spree' event. Students who participated in Martin Luther King day festivities on January 16 were invited to the store in Cedar Hill to purchase items they need for the upcoming YAG State Competition in Austin. They received suits, shoes, shirts and other business attire. Youth and Government has a strict dress code for participants in competitions and related functions.

Duncanville ISD received $4,000 to meet the YAG students' needs.
