QV Students Honored at Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics

Congratulations to Paige Frank and Sanai Horne, who recently performed in the first annual ACT-SO (Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics) competition sponsored by the Coraopolis NAACP.  ACT-SO is a year-long achievement program designed to recognize, prepare, and reward African-American youth who exemplify academic and artistic excellence.  Since ACT-SO's inception in 1976, more than 350,000 young people have participated in the program nationwide.  The event includes 33 STEM, humanities, entrepreneurship, performing arts, visual arts, and culinary arts competitions.

Sanai and Paige competed in ACT-SO on April 9, 2022, at the RMU John Jay Center.  Sanai earned a gold medal in the classical instrumental category, while Paige earned silver medals in engineering and computer science.  Mr. Carter Spruill, the Coraopolis NAACP President and local ACT-SO organizer, presented the trophies and awards to Sanai and Paige at school.  In June, the young women and their families will be invited to a formal celebration.
