ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some Albany Middle school students who worked hard all year to get better grades got a special treat Saturday.

100 students from Robert Cross Middle Magnet School got a special Wildcats pre-game tailgate party, and a chance to see the game tonight thanks to the Young Leaders Society.

The students were chosen based on their academic achievements.

"We have 100 of their top students that have not only improved their grades but their performance in the classroom we've got a tailgate out here for them, the radio station is here, we have a local motor cycle club out here, we're serving them food we're going to take them inside, the players are going to meet them and sign their T-shirts," said Michael Revell, YLS Chairman.

The young leader's society partnered with the United Way of Southwest Georgia's Cats for Kids program and the school to make it all possible.
