Albany- Students at Albany Middle School began the twenty-five books campaign Friday afternoon.
Teachers encouraged students to read twenty five book by the end of the year to increase their knowledge and vocabulary.
Albany State Athletic Director, Dr. John Davis, delivered an inspirational message to the students about reading. After Davis' speech, the Albany Middle Cheerleaders pepped students up with a book cheer.
Teachers hope each student will gain motivation to read twenty-five books this year, and realize that reading is fun.
