ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany youth minister energized young people tonight as they prepare to head back to school.

Travious Simmons hosted a citywide youth rally at Metropolitan Baptist church. Families came out to celebrate young people and ensure they return to the classroom charged up and with a good attitude.

"My vision is to impact the student's life, said Simmons who is a youth minister. "So that way they will be able to empower the people who they are surrounded by in classes and in the hallways at school."

The Civil Rights Institute... fun park... and other local businesses donated gift certificates to give away to kids tonight.
