MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

This week's 5 Great Things that happened in the Mid-south is showcasing the talents and needs of our young people!  

1. Basketball Tournament raises 4k

A basketball tournament raised more than 4-thousand dollars to help a Southaven girl to buy a wheelchair-accessible van.

Destiny White, 12, was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which causes her bones to break with little to no cause. So far, she's broken more than 100 bones in her lifetime.

2. Blue Path Program

A new program is giving 150 graduating high school seniors the opportunity to work full-time with the Memphis Police Department.

"Blue Path" is a program that targets young people and provides a way for them to serve the community through the police department.

Plus, it comes with an all-expense paid college education where the student will be able to receive an associate's degree in criminal justice and a job.

3. Sisters on Shark Tank

Two Shelby County sisters with a brilliant idea landed a $60,000 business deal thanks to the hit TV show Shark Tank.
Mallory and Madison Boyd, 12 and 10 years old, founded a business called Angels and Tomboys. They're creating fragrances and lotions geared toward tween girls.

On the latest episode of the show, they landed a deal with two investors: Daymond John and Mark Cuban.

4. Master Chef Jr. in Time Magazine

Memphis-native Chef Logan Guleff, 14, was named one of Time Magazine's 30 most influential teens.

Guleff won Master Chef Junior in 2014 and is the youngest certified judge for the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, among other honors and awards.

He's also about to release a cookbook and already has a line of spices called Logan's Rub.

5. Perfect ACT scores

Three Memphis University School students received a perfect ACT score.

MUS identified Andrew Douglass, Ray Zhou, and Arjun Puri as the students who finished the test without a single error.

For some perspective, only one in every 1,000 people who take the ACT are able to achieve a perfect score.
