In a season dominated by pigskin, there are other accolades to pass out at area schools.
First, a huge pat on the back goes to the Thomson High School Bulldog Brigade. Aside from providing halftime entertainment and musical support during football games, the band flourished in various competitions this Fall, bringing home superior ratings and several trophies.
Director Jesse Morlan's dedication and the hard work of band members is paying off with a stellar reputation for the Bulldog Brigade. It's that reputation that led to a Hawaii invitation in two years. (While we're on that subject, it's not too early to send donations to help their cause!)
At the same time, congratulations go out to the Briarwood one-act play troupe. Under the direction of Jeanie Joesbury, they took their show on the road and performed Into the Woods at the region competition last week in Augusta. They came back to Briarwood with second place in the region, a best actor award for Joseph Baldwin and best actress honors for Wendi Wilson.
Up next is the state competition today at Middle Georgia College where Briarwood will compete against other private schools from across the state. We wish the Bucs the best of luck there.
