Pascagoula Students Focus On Mentoring In "Your Future, Your Choice"

This is the second time the students at Pascagoula high school have taken part in WLOX's "Your Future, Your Choice" campaign.

This time, the students picked the subject of child mentoring, because so many students volunteered this year. One of those students is senior Trey Clardy. Trey and his new young friend Blake Gonzales, aren't just acting. They've been part of the mentoring program all year.

"Most of the time we work on his math and the homework he has, and we'll go outside and throw the football and stuff like that," Trey said.

The public service announcement features six students from the Pascagoula school systems. Seniors like Marion Warfield hope this public service announcement will inspire other students to get involved.

"I became a mentor this year, and I think it's something that is really good because it's giving back to the community," Marion said.

Organizers like teacher Paige Roberts say besides getting a good message out, the "Your Future, Your Choice" program is also a good learning experience.

"Anytime my students can get involved with a real project, anytime they can move their learning outside the classroom's walls, they're excited," she said.

The PSA features six students, but organizers say at least a dozen broadcast students were behind the scenes helping producing this public service announcement.
