Albany- Several Dougherty County high school students say they are learning what it takes to work effectively as a team.

LaGrange College at Albany seniors coordinated a Servant Leadership Day for their senior projects. During the workshop, students participated in several team building exercises to help better their communication skills.

Senior, Blake Benford, says, "We wanted to do this for our senior project because we want to give back to the community and help these young people learn how to do the same thing."

Many of these students are already leaders or presidents of various clubs in their schools. Now, they just want to become even better.

Timothy Garver says, "I am already a leader, but after today, I will be even better." Community leaders, like Bob Geiger from the Albany Herald also shared words of inspiration with the students. Geiger says good communication has helped him throughout his career.

Geiger adds, "Communication is so important. You also must be a good listener and learn from your mistakes."

LaGrange College students say this is more than just their senior project, it's their way of giving back to their community, hoping these future leaders will give back, too.

The LaGrange College students who coordinated this project are now preparing for college graduation in June.
