DENISON TX-- A group of residents are sprucing up the city of Denison for the arrival of a hometown hero, Captain Chesley Sullenberger.
Sullenberger helped save over 150 people when he safely landed a plane on the Hudson River back in January.
Today members of the Denison Young Professionals Group gathered on Woodlawn Street to pick up trash and clean up the city in time for Sullenberger's June 6th arrival.
Not only will he take part in a motorcade through the city, Sullenberger will also deliver the commencement speech at Denison High School's graduation.
" Well for us we do a lot of things in the community and one of which we wanted to just be a part as young professionals in the community. We wanted to help shape what Denison will look like in the future so we come out a couple times a year and help in the revitalization efforts. It’s important to us”, said Jared Johnson of the Denison Young Professionals.
Another city-wide cleanup is scheduled for this Saturday.
