ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some non-traditional students who got behind in class are on the fast track to graduation thanks to a special Dougherty County Schools program designed to help them.

Monday night, 24 Performance Learning Center students were celebrated and honored for their accomplishments.

Several students stepped up to the microphone and shared their stories with school leaders. They say without PLC, it would have been hard for them to make it to graduation day.

"The program is very successful. We are very excited. We have several students dually enrolled at Albany Technical College. We have students going on to secondary education so it's a very successful program," said CIS Executive Director Susan Haynes.

The PLC students will be able to join their classes from the four high schools at graduation ceremonies this weekend.
