What People Say

  • Talent Search helped me find the courage to cheer which eventually led to a scholarship at college. I now cheer, do work study and am a member of the theater group and Tusculum and will be in my first play this fall. Because of Talent Search, I have now decided to become an art teacher so that I can help other teenage kids decide to enrich their lives by going to college.
