LEADERSHIP PERRYTON CONDUCTS POVERTY SIMULATION

LEADERSHIP PERRYTON CONDUCTS POVERTY SIMULATION

The latest Leadership Perryton class gathered for the annual Poverty Simulation exercise on Friday morning. The exercise, now in its second year in Perryton, is designed to teach empathy with community members who live on low incomes and encourage leaders to look for ways to reduce poverty. Class members take on the roles of low-income families, while 19 volunteers, consisting of the Leadership Perryton planning committee and alumni of the program, serve as representatives of social services, schools, employers, utilities, pawn shops, banks, and other agencies and businesses. Pictured are Susie Najera, assuming the role of a social service agency, with class members Lyric Stringfield and Barrett Holland.
