(Students start arriving at 8:00 a.m.)  Over 200 high school students have already registered, and Delta expects to receive some “group registrations” from several area schools.  The ACT Coordinator, Mary Helen Sinclair just informed me that we should plan for approximately 400 participants!

25 Delta members are volunteering and several area school principals are expected to be on campus.

Please consider this to be a recruiting event!  (10th, 11th, 12th graders)
