School is about to start, but before the kids head back to class, Selby County Commissioner Melvin Burgess is hoping to teach a few life lessons to go along with the reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Commissioner Burgess is sponsoring the Second Annual Watch DOGS Youth Cowboy Ranch Back to School Retreat in Holly Springs, Miss.
The event is free to all inner-city young men. There is a limit of 60 youth between the ages of 8-16.
Everyone leaves for the retreat at 7 a.m. at the Shelby County Schools Board of Education Office, 160 South Hollywood St., in Memphis.
