NAACP hopes ACT-SO program becomes pillar for youth, community

Liberty County NAACP President Graylan Quarterman

Dear editor:

We are writing to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to everyone who participated and attended the Liberty NAACP Black History Youth Program on Sunday, March 3.

The youth of Liberty County gathered at Baconton Missionary Baptist Church, in Allenhurst, to showcase their talents in celebration of Black History Month.  

This gathering will serve as prelude to bringing, once again, to Liberty County, one of NAACP’s programs, Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO).  

NAACP Georgia State National Conference, Chairperson, Ms. Toni Holmes provided information about the program.  ACT-SO is a yearlong achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students. 

The goals of ACT-SO are:

To mobilize the adult community for the promotion of academic and artistic excellence.

To recognize creative talent and academic achievement.

To provide and assist students with the necessary skills to establish goals and acquire the confidence and training to make a successful contribution to society.

Special Thanks to Baconton Missionary Baptist Church being the host, and to all who assisted in making this a great event. 

Lastly, thank you to all of the very talented performers. This is just the beginning, we are looking forward to the ACT-SO program becoming a pillar in our county for our youth and community. 

Graylan Quarterman
