The search for Memphis-area talent to participate in the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is underway propelled by a student orientation program held recently at First Baptist Church-Broad.
The ACT-SO program is a nationally recognized youth and achievement initiative sponsored by the NAACP, with high school students from the tri-state area encouraged to take part.
"The focus of a viable and effective local ACT-SO program is enrichment and mentorship," said Madeleine Taylor, executive director of the Memphis Branch NAACP.
