We are proud to have the Memphis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. and Black Professional Men, Inc. of Baltimore serving as our local sponsors this year, stated Smith.

The Outstanding African American Students™ Awards Program highlights the achievements of noteworthy students from grades one through twelve who have made significant strides in such areas as art, music, sports, academics, creative writing, computer technology and community and church leadership. In August, the honored students will be feted at a special awards ceremony where each will receive a commemorative certificate and a free copy of the Outstanding African American Students™ publication containing his or her photograph and summary of achievements.

This is a great opportunity for students to be motivated to go beyond in their acheivements. This past year my son was selected in the 6th grade as one of the recipients. This award/recognization motivated him in his school work as well as community service activities. If you know of any child that meets the requirements or have the potential, please submit their names. Sometimes many people look for simple words or words of encouragement. Just think how this award can lift up any child, regardless of their personal circumstances. Please share this opportunity and have an overflow of participants.
