Lee County--Lee County High School is doing its part to improve student literacy.

Nearly 600 thesauruses were handed out to ninth graders. The Certified Literate Community Program of Southwest Georgia helped provide students with the books.

The program's first annual "Dictionary Project" hopes to reduce illiteracy among Georgia students.

"We are about education and improving literacy levels of children, families, and workers,and one way to highlight that is by providing tools that are necessary for graduation," says Rozanne Eubanks, CLCP Coordinator.

Eubanks says they hope to provide even more students with thesauruses and dictionaries next year.
