Albany-- Three Dougherty County elementary students are devouring their required reading, and were rewarded with some tasty food for their efforts.

Magnolia Elementary students Michael Rutland, David Hamilton, and Raekwon Williams, met the county-wide reading requirements for the year in just a few months!

These extraordinary readers got a free lunch at CiCi's Pizza, with the school superintendent and their proud parents coming along. "I think it's wonderful. It gives them an opportunity to read and comprehend things at an early age so when they get older they can articulate more," said Proud Parent Ahmon Williams.

The student's earn points for every book they read. At the end of the year, Magnolia Elementary students who have met the reading goals will take a field trip to the Marine Base.
