In addition, eighth grader Fantaisha Polite was selected to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum July 14-19 at Emory University in Atlanta.

She was chosen based upon her academic potential and interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.

A student at Robert E. Howard Middle School, Polite is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Terry Polite of Orangeburg. She is a member of Warren Chapel Baptist Church and attends Sunday school every Sunday.

“I feel really excited,” Polite said of the opportunity. “I’m ready to go.”
