Lee thespians take state honors

November 18, 2003

Lee County-- Southwest Georgia is known for its high school athletics, but what about its fine arts? One high school is gaining a reputation for being the best drama program in the state.

Lee County High School's play "The Sudden and Accidental Re-Education of Horse Johnson" won second place in the state AAAAA competition over the weekend. In fact, the student who played the title character took home Best Actor honors.

Jason Clark, named Best Actor, says "It's been very overwhelming. All these people coming up to me and saying great job and I'm like thanks, it's very flattering."

Robby Davis has run the Lee County Theatre Program for 12 years--11 times the students have won the Region title, three times they've been named Best in the State.
