BCHS One Act to honor memory of local "music man."

BCHS One Act to honor memory of local "music man."

Louis Foster in many ways, was Cochran's "music man."  Foster served as band director for both Bleckley County Middle School and Bleckley County High School for many years as well as teaching music at Middle Georgia State University.  He passed away earlier this summer after a brief illness.

Bleckley County High School One Act Play will be honoring the memory of Foster with their competition piece.  At this weekend's fundraising talent shows A Night with the Strars, it was announced that this year's one act performance,The Music Man, would be dedicated to the memory of Foster.

Community performances of one act will be held in October.  Region 3-AA competition will be hosted by BCHS.
