ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Hundreds of volunteers were honored Thursday for their service to the Dougherty County Schools.

With a tight budget school officials say those volunteers are more important than ever. A brunch was held this morning at the school's Isabella Complex. Approximately 123 volunteers workers more than 100 hours in the schools this year. School officials say volunteers do everything from mentoring students to helping office staff, to working in several of the schools media centers and their efforts don't go unnoticed.

"Right now since we're in such a budget crunch we're not able to hire as many people as we would like so volunteers really help us to fill some of those areas that we have a need for," said Tomeeka Daniels, DCSS Volunteer Coordinator.

The school system is always looking for new volunteers. You can sign up or get information from the schools administration office.
