Graduation day for Detroit Lions Academy students

Image 1 of 3

Wednesday was graduation day for a bunch of eighth graders.

But this group was different - because it was the graduating class of the Detroit Lions Academy.

Twenty-six kids participated and some Lions players were there for the hoopla. Lions DB Jamal Agnew was the keynote speaker.

The academy is a Detroit Public Schools Community District alternative middle school  that has smaller classroom sizes for students to receive individualized or small group instruction. 

Woody Woodriffe was there - watch the video to learn more.
