Yuma Union High School District

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Kofa High School alum Isaac Navarrate opened his 3rd Annual Grant A Gown fundraiser. This is in support of high school seniors who cannot afford their cap and gown for their graduation ceremony.

“We’ve had so much support from the community over the last two years to continue,” said Navarrete. “There’s no reason any student shouldn’t get their own cap and gown. I’m really grateful to continue Grant A Gown because it’s my way to give back while away from home.”

Navarrate, a current student of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, came up with the idea of Grant A Gown when a member of his family couldn't afford a cap and gown for graduation.
