JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Thousands of students across Pascagoula and Gautier, including preschoolers, are learning to dress for success. Once a month, students get to wear their favorite business attire to school.

Today was the first Dress for Success Day at Pascagoula High. The idea came about during a summit held by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.

Business and industry leaders raised concerns about the way young people dress for job interviews and how they conduct themselves. The school district decided to focus on ways to prepare students for the workforce.

Trang Pham Bui will tell you all about the new program tonight. Look for her story on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
