Senator Missy Irvin will be the featured speaker at the Arkansas Youth Challenge graduation ceremony today at 10:00 a.m. at the Levy Church of Christ at 5124 Camp Robinson Road.
The Youth Challenge is administered by the National Guard to give young people a second chance to turn their lives around. Today 78 cadets will graduate. The young men and women who voluntarily chose to participate spent the past five-and-a-half months in the program.
"This is a great example of the type of program the state should be supporting," Irvin said. "Talking to the cadets, I have heard some amazing stories of how they were able to turn their lives around, thanks to the Youth Challenge program."
