ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Marine base held its annual military educational summit tonight.
Active duty families got first-hand information from leaders of multiple schools and school districts in the area as they choose where to send their kids.
"The families are amazed at the opportunity that we give them. Not many installations give their families options. Most installations the family has to go to the assigned or zoned school," said MCLB School Liaison Officer Latreessa Perryman.
MCLB officials said many of the military families make their school choice based on what they learn at this event.
