Young Men of Honor celebrating their accomplishments

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Some young students already taking steps to be leaders in the Savannah community.

Thirty five young men were recognized Sunday at Spencer Elementary School.

The boys are part of the Young Men of Honor organization, a program that teaches them the importance of education, getting good grades, and being good citizens.

This is the first year one of the students will be graduating high school and moving on to college.

The Young Men of Honor program began seven years ago with only eight students.

It's the brain child of Ms. Diane Jackson, a teacher at spencer elementary.

She says, "we do this every year to celebrate their accomplishments, and the things that they've done through out the year, whether it's quiz bowl, or spelling bee, or whatever academically."
