    Cardwell Senior Recognized for National Youth Entrepreneur Challenge

    Cardwell Career Preparatory senior Clifton Jackson recently competed in the 2017 National Youth Entrepreneur Challenge after creating a three-in-one tool for electricians. His invention, the CWC Pliers, is designed to increase job efficiency and workplace safety by reducing the number of times an electrician switches tools. Having excelled in the regional round this summer, Clifton joined 41 young entrepreneurs in New York City for the annual contest hosted by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Clifton made an extraordinary run, advancing as one of three national finalists and winning $5,000 as runner-up. Clifton is also the first student from the North Texas region to reach the final round. He is pictured with Irving ISD Superintendent of Schools Jose L. Parra, Ed.D.
