Albany -- Hundreds of Dougherty County students and community leaders kicked off a new school program Monday morning at the Courthouse, in a loud fashion.

 The Monroe High School Cheerleaders led the students, teacher, and community members in a cheer for the "I Care Program."

 " I Care" is a program that calls for parental and community involvement to help the students focus on education and character development.

Parents are called on to stress education more,make sure their children get enough sleep, eat a good breakfast, and make it school on time each day.

Chamber of Commerce Chairman Dr. John Culbreath said "the entire community will benefit from bright, intelligent, hardworking young people who will grow up through the I Care program here in the school system. "

The Chamber of Commerce is asking businesses to get more involved mentoring students and supporting the Dougherty County Schools, to improve the drop out rate of students and the education level of the community.
