Dozens of students sacrificed their Saturday mornings to prepare for the ACT exam.

Beta Theta Fraternity and "In Full Motion. Inc." provided free ACT training classes at Austin-East High School. The session covered test tips for English and math, which were designed to help students achieve their college goals.

Mark Deathridge, a site coordinator with "In Full Motion, Knoxville," said even a small improvement on the ACT can lead to significant results.

"We have had students raise their points anywhere from four to six points - the difference between making a 1700 and a 2400 would be the opportunity to have greater scholarships," said Deathridge.

Organizers said the training sessions helps nearly 800 kids in Nashville each week. A funding grant makes it possible for "In Full Motion, Inc." to travel to Knoxville for the first time.
