For the second year in a row, students in the Mentoring Tomorrow’s Leaders (MTL) program at Plantation High School won the Urban League of Broward County’s Brain Bowl competition.  Led by MTL Coordinator Randy Scott, the group of six students faced off against three other high school teams over two weekends to be named winners. The two-time champions received a trophy and a new laptop computer for each team member. The students will now advance to the state championships in Tampa to compete against other Florida winners. 

MTL is a peer-to-peer mentoring and student leadership program that serves youth who are at-risk for not graduating and/or remaining in school. The program aims to decrease dropout rates, particularly among minority males, to ensure successful school graduation.
