Valdosta - One South Georgia elementary school hopes an acting project will help students take on some positive real life roles.

For their Living History Day, the fourth grade students at Southeast Elementary in Valdosta portrayed African Americans who made history.

They performed for the whole school and parents as part of Black History Month.

Teachers hope learning about these role models will inspire students to be role models themselves. 

"We want them to see people that show positives and there are a lot of positive people doing positive things. And they need to know at a young age so we can instill in them, that they need to learn to do positive things," says LaShonda Bess.

This is an annual event at Southeast Elementary.

Usually they portray historical figures, but this year they focused on role models of today, like Tiger Woods.
