ST. PETERSBURG — Duke Energy recently presented Mt. Zion Human Services, 945 20th St. S, with a Community Leadership Grant of $1,000 to be used to assist high school students in the community. This grant will help them fund outings such as the one last month when the Mt. Zion College Prep 101 program took students on a trip to the Florida Invitational Step Show at the University of Florida.
During the trip the students were able to speak with academic advisors, got an up-close view of a step show, learned about Greek life on campus and received a tour of the grounds. The students also received assistance with SAT & ACT testing techniques, preparation on their college resumes and actively researched and determined what major would best fit them best.
