The event was sponsored by the UT?Martin Office of Minority Affairs. Students attended this competitive weeklong summer residential program, designed for upcoming high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. The non-credit program introduced students to the college experience by focusing on three learning environments: special aptitude development; personal and social development; and college/major exploration. Students attending from Weakley County included, from left, Reggie Morrow, Kristin McCloud, Nicole Jones, Demetrie Kimble and Anasious Martin.
