SPARKS GA - (WALB) -

A South Georgia teacher is now part of a state-wide program to help increase arts education in kindergarten through high school in Georgia.

Cook County Middle School Band Director Woody Leonard will be part of the 12 member "Arts Learning Task Force" created by Governor Deal. Leonard said he's looking forward to helping expand the already great quality of arts education that South Georgia Schools have.
 
"If we can maintain that quality of program and involve more students, I just think that's a win-win situation for the arts and for the school system," said Leonard.
 
The task force is planning to have it's first meeting in late August or early September.
