PRINCETON, Ind. (WFIE) - In Gibson County, 23 students each have two new pairs of shoes thanks to Jackie Young.

Princeton’s own Olympic Gold medalist made a visit to her sister’s second grade class at Princeton Community Primary School.

Each student got to open their shoes, which were personal Christmas gifts from Jackie.

She remains Indiana’s all-time leading high school basketball scorer.

Her team the Las Vegas Aces won the WNBA championship in September.

She also helped Team USA bring home a gold medal in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
