Leesburg,  GA (WALB) –  Daylight never looked so good for dozens of people who slept outdoors to enroll their children in the Lee County School system.

They started lining up Thursday night in anticipation of Friday's west zone Pre-K registration. It's first come, first served and these parents wanted to make sure their children got in.

And they came prepared to spend the night outside for the coveted spots. It was a cold morning, but parents said it was worth it. And the most dedicated award goes to a man who waited outside for 24 hours.

"I got a blanket, glove, and a toboggan. And his heater that he's sharing," said Steve Burton.

"You know I asked about the PreK program and they said yea we've got a great one but you have to camp out. And I thought that was crazy until I started adding up bills then I thought that's probably a good idea," said Christy Goodwin.

There were 200 slots in all, 100 for the east zone, 100 for the west zone. And, not surprisingly, all the spots are gone.
