Dougherty County - Elementary students planted several trees Wednesday morning in memory of September 11th and a special employee.

Sherwood Acres Elementary School in Albany planted three red maple trees in their Sherwood Forest.

One tree in honor of 9-11 victims, one for everyday heroes and another for a school counselor, Lemont Sorrell, who died last school year. 10-year-old Asia Woods says, "It makes me feel good because I feel like a citizen of our great country". 9-year-old James Langston explains why they planted trees, "Because a lot of people got hurt by it and we want to make a memory of it."

The first trees planted in Sherwood's Forest were planted in memory of the victims of Oklahoma City bombing.
