Teens to lead bike ride through South Memphis

Montavious Dean, a 16-year-old from Hamilton High School, and Sequoia Campbell, an 18-year-old from Grad Academy, are among 10 South Memphis teenagers who’ve been volunteering their time for a singular mission.

They’re a group of “ambassadors,” participants in Memphis’ version of the national Big Jump Project, and have since November been attending monthly meetings to learn how to build and improve soft skills like leadership development. They’ve also been learning how to ride and maintain bicycles, which are the focal point of the Big Jump effort. On March 24, Dean, Campbell and their fellow Big Jump teen ambassadors will lead a community bike ride through South Memphis.
