"Y Knot" Necktie Drive Benefits Student Athletes

Mansfield ISD staff and community members opened their hearts (and their closets) to support the “Y Knot” Necktie donation drive hosted by the Coble Middle School PTA. Over 300 neckties were donated to benefit middle and high school student athletes across the district.

The MISD Athletic program promotes discipline, character-building, and professionalism though its Leadership Program. As part of this program, male middle school and high school athletes are required to wear professional attire on game days. This donation drive not only assisted with providing the required attire to our athletes, it demonstrated the tremendous community support for our students.

As a bonus, Dr. Jim Vaszauskas, Superintendent of Schools, provided a lesson in tying a necktie for some district athletes at Coble Middle School on the afternoon of October 1.
