Rising freshmen in Valdosta got a jump start on their first year of high school this week.

Valdosta State Linebacker Larry Dean talked to students at Cat Camp about staying in school, making good grades, and the importance of serving the community.

The teens spent the last week learning their way around the high school and learning why it's important to succeed in high school from day one.

"I'm ready to get school started and do the work so I can pass and graduate so I can go to a good school and get a good scholarship," said Frederick Brown, a rising freshman.

"I like meeting new people and getting know people I'll be going to school with next year," said Hannah Harmon, another rising freshman.

It's the sixth year Valdosta high school has put on Cat Camp. They learn about college and career readiness and made some new friends.
