DOCO hosts back to school rally

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Dougherty County teachers gathered to get excited about the upcoming school year that starts in the upcoming week.

Superintendent David Mosley is excited to kick off the school year. He said that he looks forward to the annual rally each year.

Mosley says that students are society's most important possession, but the day was about recognizing teachers.

"We hope that they come already hyped up, and they have a good work ethic and want to do the right things, but I think it's good for all of us to let them know they're appreciated, and brag on them, tell them some of the good stuff and some of the expectations we have for the upcoming year. And get them fired up and ready to go," said superintendent David Mosely."

Students will head back to class in Dougherty County on August 2.
