City of Milledge to Hold State Championship Parade Saturday

This Saturday the entire community will come together to celebrate our state champions! The City of Milledgeville will hold a State Championship Parade for Baldwin High School and John Milledge Academy for bringing home State Basketball Championship titles. The event will take place, Saturday, March 27th, at 3:00 p.m. in downtown Milledgeville and will feature our Varsity Boys Basketball Team, Cheerleaders, Coaches, Baldwin High School and district Administrators, and the 1981 Baldwin High School State Championship Boys Basketball Team. The parade will stop on East Hancock Street in front of City Hall and each school administrator, coach, and team captain will meet City of Milledgeville Mayor Mary Parham - Copelan who will present each one with a proclamation.

Immediately following the parade, the Baldwin High School Athletic Department will host a fundraiser at the James A. Lunsford Gymnasium at Baldwin High School. We will recognize the Baldwin Braves state championship team and all of their success this year as well as the Baldwin Bravette's team success as region champions. The Baldwin High School drumline and cheerleaders as well as the Oak Hill Middle School cheerleaders and dance team will perform. The event will culminate with remarks from the team and a ceremonial cutting down of the nets.
