Damácia with Jen Hale, Atlanta Community Liaison for Books for Africa.
Written by Savannah Norton
Georgia Cyber Academy 8th grader Damácia Howard was crowned 2016 Miss Georgia Pre-Teen Queen in July.
Damácia has been putting her title to great use in her community, including collecting close to 3,000 more books for Books for Africa on the heels of collecting 5,000 books for the organization last year.
This Friday, Damácia and other volunteers will deliver the books to the Books for Africa warehouse in Atlanta. Books for Africa is the largest shipper of donated text and library books to Africa.
