ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A free tutoring program in Albany will focus on helping students who attend struggling schools.

Community leaders and educators from the Terry Learning Center unveiled the program Thursday night.

ASU students and school system teachers will each tutor roughly 10 students to help make sure they stay in school and graduate.

The Terry Learning Center studied 16 systems in Georgia and saw the biggest need here in Dougherty County.

"We determined Dougherty County would best serve as a district that would lead the way in education not only in Georgia but in the United States of America," said Terry Learning Center CEO, Vincent Terry.

If you know a student you'd like to enroll in the program, call the Dougherty County Schools Supplemental Education Services program to find out who's eligible.
