Written by Jenna Needham

Hard to believe but Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) 8th grader and Miss Georgia Pre-Teen Queen Damácia Howard has done it again, donating 5,050 more books to the Books for Africa warehouse in Atlanta on Friday. Damácia has worked closely with this organization, donating 5,000 books last year alone.

“Damácia has set a goal of donating one million books,” said her mother, Regina Howard. “It’s going to take a lot of time, but it is something she can definitely work at. GCA provides Damácia with the schedule flexibility and strong academic foundation to accomplish her dreams. ”
