The Sun—Southwestern College’s student-run newspaper—featured a video of student Marco Chavez and his Motiv clothing line, which uses fabrics made with bamboo fiber. Marco recently participated in a “Shark Tank” style regional business pitch competition and placed 5th and was awarded a $500 scholarship. To prepare for the competition, Marco took the YEP online training and participated in a series of group labs and one-on-one counseling sessions hosted by CITD Business Advisors and Southwestern College Business Professor, Yvonne Lucas.
