Albany-- Several students from the Dougherty County School System made a special trip across the stage Sunday afternoon.

Sixty students gathered in the Albany High School auditorium to celebrate the completion of the summer school program. Family and friends watched as students from Albany, Dougherty, Monroe and Westover High Schools received their diplomas. It's a late end to high school for students but for many the hard work paid off.

"I think everybody should get their high school diploma. It's a hard world out there and pretty soon you're going to need a high school diploma to do everything," says Dougherty graduate LeRon Street.

"They've completed a chapter in high school and now they're moving on to bigger and brighter things," says DCSS Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley.
