Elementary students in Zachary publish book

ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - Some Zachary second graders are celebrating after becoming published authors Friday.

They were given their new titles by Student Treasures Publishing, a company that helps get students' books published.

The company celebrated publishing its 12 millionth student author, which was from Rollins Place Elementary School.

"I think it's something that they'll keep forever," said Principal Jennifer Marangos. "They always look back at it and no matter what else is going on, they'll look back at that as a sense of accomplishment - that they were a real author."

Student Treasures Publishing also gave the school a $1,000 check so it can buy more books for its library.
