Albany-- Twenty-three Terrell County second graders are now pre-enrolled at Albany State University. The boys from Lilly Cooper Primary Elementary School received a letter of acceptance from A-S-U President Dr. Everette Freeman.

It's part of a program called 2018 sponsored by Albany state University's Center for the African American Male. Organizers say it's a great way to get young men excited about a college education.

"It does excite them as a matter of fact, today they will receive a letter of acceptance into Albany State University in the year 2018. So we are marketing College we are marketing ASU specifically, but the whole idea of going to college is what we are trying to put into these young men's heads" said W. Frank Wilson

Each of the second graders school performance will be followed through mentoring program. They'll have to meet enrollment requirements to earn final acceptance to A-S-U.
