SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The annual Teens for Literacy Shadowing Day wrapped up at Armstrong State University on Thursday.

The event invites students from local schools including Claxton Middle and Port Wentworth's Alternative Elementary Fresh Start Program. It allows students to experience life as a college student by touring the campus and even sitting in on classes.

"I want to go to college and I want to be, I want to be known as more in life," said Juquirious Coleman from East Broad K-8.

"Teens for Literacy empowers middle school students to be leaders, to develop their literacy skills as well as their presentation skills," said ASU professor Anne Katz. "It provides an opportunity for Armstrong students to participate in community literacy endeavors."

2016 marks the fourth year for the program. It ended with a luncheon and awards ceremony on Thursday.
