ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State Rams team with an elementary school to keep kids off drugs. It's drug awareness week at Morningside Elementary. It's also Homecoming week for ASU.

The band, football players, cheerleaders and student government leaders from the university held a pep rally for the kids. The purpose was to encourage kids to read and stay away from drugs.

Shaymoskia Whitlock made a promise to do just that. She says she already knows where she wants to go to college. "I want to become a Zeta O Beta and I want to get a degree and I want to work." Do you know where you want to go to college? "Albany State."

This is the 14th year Albany State has partnered with Morningside for the drug free pep rally.
