The Elite, youth development and scholarship program was designed and implemented in 2003 by Dr. Holloway. Since its inception graduating seniors have been awarded over $95,000 in scholarships.
The motto, Above and Beyond was created by Teen Vice-President Rahman Austin (2007-08) and the goal for teens is to go above and beyond academically, in public service, and in leadership.
Teens participate in weekly youth development workshops, monthly college prep workshops & college visits as well as monthly talks from minorities who have benefited from higher education.
Weekly, the students walk through a curriculum designed to last the entire year developed by Dr. Holloway and former director Christal Liddell.
Overall, the program has a 98% college placement rate. The 2009 college placement rate is 99%.
Additioanlly, teens have the opportunity to exercise their creative and journalistic skills by publishing articles in the newsletter,Yalak now known as The Scene.
