Hawks exec praises CCHS choir

Cordele — In the following letter sent to CCHS Choir Director Susan Beck by Kelsey Pinney

Executive - Group Sales & Service for the Atlanta Hawks & Philips Arena, she praises the group's recent performance at an Atlanta Hawk's game in Atlanta.

Susan,

I wanted to congratulate you and your AMAZING choir at Crisp County High School on a SPECTACULAR performance at our Atlanta Hawks v. Boston Celtics home game Saturday, Jan. 5. 

It was truly a pleasure to host your group out here at Philips Arena to sing the national anthem, and what better game than in front of a sold out crowd of over 19,000 people in attendance!

On behalf of our Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena organization, we would like to thank you for your participation, as well as your continued support of the Atlanta Hawks.  We look forward to seeing you all back out here next season.

Best Regards and GO HAWKS!

Kelsey Pinney

Executive - Group Sales & Service

  • Letter to the Editor

    I enjoy reminders of what I have:  Freedom to be whomever I choose and to choose who leads me in government, abundance of good food, housing, transportation, and education opportunity, and above all others the freedom to worship as I believe and God’s grace in my Savior from sin.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editors,
    Cordele is probably not unique in that the story of our community has been told in the pages of a locally printed newspaper through the years.
    While it seems that our rapidly changing technologies threaten the future of small towns, maybe even metropolitan areas, newspapers will be difficult for at least one more generation to find a substitute for local reporting.

  • One of God’s little lessons

    NOTE: This was a little pre-New Year story that I shared with friends on facebook about a personal experience on New Year’s Eve. By request of several of those friends I decided to share it here for our readers who may not be on social media to enjoy.

  • EDITORIALS: Move forward on immigration reform; SNAP cuts impact all

    The chance of serious immigration reform passing in these closing weeks of Congress depends on how optimistic you are. / The 6 percent, or $5 billion, cut to the nation’s food stamp program will harm more than those individual recipients.
