About The Committee

Each year, high school students across the country start a journey to sharpen their skills through the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO). From visual arts and business to performing and culinary arts, participants work with community-based volunteers for a year to develop projects and performances. The experience culminates in local and national events where students compete for scholarships and other rewards.

Please share this information with students who may be interested in sharing their talents. Contact Reginald Fox, ACT-SO Chair at reginaldfox1226@gmail.com. More specific information will be provided to each student about their participation at the local level. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me directly at (757) 344-3244. Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from our students.
