ASU students help at Drug Awareness Day

October 25, 2007

Albany -- Students at Morningside Elementary School got "Albany State Ram Fever" Thursday morning as they learned the importance of Drug Awareness.

 The Albany State University Cheerleaders, Rams football team, and students joined Morningside Elementary School students for a Drug Free Pep Rally.

The Albany Mayor, City Manager, Police Chief, and City Commissioner also took part. They let the students know in a fun way the importance of saying no to drugs and yes to education.

 ASU Drug Free Chairperson Wanda Cheeks said "where they might not listen to their teachers, but looking at other of this age group, then might say, OK, I can do that.""

 Miss A-S-U, Dawn Franklin, read to Miss Fournier's second grade class. About 100 Albany State Students read to the Morningside Students before the pep rally.
