Young 'pups' hope to wow the step show crowd

Members of the newly-formed ‘Q-Pups’ will take the stage at the UT Martin Homecoming Greek Show.
One meeting of the minds, consisting of Patrice Boyd of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and Henry Garrett (H.G.), Bob Baker (Mr. Bob), Agustus Taylor, III (Gus), and Darrell Nash of Omega Psi Phi Corp, was all that was needed to get the transformation of the lives of four young men going.
The group, ranging in age from 8-11 years and including Kylan Vonner, Miguel Gardner, Reid Chandler and Bradason Lawson, are set to become the first-ever known Q-Pups.
With only seven practices to go until the night of the annual Homecoming Greek Show at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin, the hard work is now underway. Boyd contacted the parents of the soon-to-be Q-Pups and scheduled the first meeting and practice at McCabe United Methodist Church.
The remaining six practices will be held at the home of Sylvester and Patrice Boyd and the young pups will be drilled to perfection.
“It was amazing to see how the four young men had similarities in facial features and body structure as well as will and determination,” a representative said.
A bond formed between the teachers and students and it is a bond that they hope will last a lifetime. Giving the youngsters a “step into the future” in the right direction provided such a positive impact that the “Ques” soon became mentors to the four enthusiastic young pups.
“The night of the show, the ‘Q-Pups’ will definitely be show stoppers,” a representative said.
All of the team members hope this will be a night to remember for not only the Q-Pups, but everyone in attendance for the show.
