Educational Talent Search. Annual Report.
The document presents a view of the program, "Educational Talent Search," operating in 20 counties in northwest Mississippi and in Wilcox County, Alabama. A description of the poverty conditions found to exist in these counties serves as a foundation for the remainder of the report. Talent scout training, talent scout efforts, and student field trips are discussed and evaluated. Case histories are presented reflecting the major work of the scouts: that of supplementing the school counselor by counseling with parents and students regarding vocational and educational training. It is reported that between June of 1967 and June of 1968, there were 6,633 instances in which the Educational Talent Search rendered services furthering its primary objective of redeeming the educational deficit of minority youth. During this time, some 506 youngsters were referred to colleges and universities for admission and financial aid. (DB)
