TAMPA, Fla., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Move over, Caped Crusader! Hit the cave, Bat Woman! Make room for the real-life "Dynamic Duo." Renowned entrepreneur and "Success Against the Odds" author Vonda White is joining forces with Orrin "Checkmate" Hudson, author of "One Move at a Time," two-time World Open Speed Chess Champion and founder of BE SOMEONE, to improve lives.
The pair will visit Tampa, Fla. this Saturday, March 24, to encourage kids to improve their Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores and take charge of their education.

4405 E. Sligh Ave, Tampa, Fla. 33610
Saturday, March 24, 2012
Program: 9:00 to 11:00 am

Together, White and Hudson form a powerful team sharing their inspirational message for kids who are struggling to find their way in confusing and frustrating times. They have combined their expertise to offer a unique self-help guide that could be called the ultimate "gift that keeps on giving."
The make-sense program promises to help teach kids problem-solving, goal-setting and conflict resolution as they learn to take responsibility and realize their awesome personal potential.
Hudson, a 6-foot-tall former soldier and Alabama state trooper who was born in the Birmingham inner city, towers over White - a petite dynamo who hails from Boise, Idaho. This striking "odd couple" is breaking the mold and reaching a vast audience. The two are as different as they appear but have both discovered the same success principles that have allowed them to rise above their personal circumstances and overcome poverty. Now they want to share with others.
Hudson says, "Together we aim to ensure that youth know they too can excel and beat the odds." Their deep, powerful messages, particularly in these rough times, are designed to be uplifting and, as White explains, "to help everyone realize that they can BE SOMEONE if they make the right moves.
Hudson's and White's purpose in life is to make a difference. "There is nothing like changing the future of young people," he says. "I was born to do this." White believes in "paying it forward" and giving back as well. Together, they make a dynamic force for good and individual change.
Tampa-area children, parents and media are invited to attend the Saturday event.
