YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – “To be honest I really needed it, it’s an amazing feeling,” said William Agnone.

During the My Brother’s Keeper conference in downtown Youngstown Tuesday, one young man was given a gift he never expected.

“They’re gonna pay for you a total prom hook-up” the speaker announced.

“I’m shaking, I am grateful, like I’m sincerely grateful,” he said.

Agnone is a student at the Academy of Urban Scholars in Youngstown. He said this gift meant a lot because he needed it.

The My Brother’s Keeper conference is meant to empower young men and encourage them to look out for each other. 

Agnone said he will take that message with him.

“I will… remember this for a long time,” he said.
