ACT-SO Gold Medal Winners

This past Saturday was the annual Bloomington-Normal Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) Competition. This event is the youth initiative of the NAACP. The purpose is to encourage academic and cultural excellence among African-American youth. We are proud to congratulate U-High students Jordyn Blythe, Boston Cooper and Elijah King on their awards at this event. Jordyn was selected as the Gold Medal Winner in the Music Instrumental-Classical and Oratory contest. Boston was the Gold Medal Winner in Entrepreneurship. Finally, Elijah was the Gold Medal Winner in Architecture. These three students are now eligible to attend the National NAACP ACT-SO Competition held in Baltimore this July. Congratulations to Jordyn, Boston and Elijah!
