Central picks Yellow Jacket Idol

THOMASVILLE — Thomas County Central High School has crowned its first Yellow Jacket Idol.

Central held the Yellow Jacket Idol talent show Thursday at  the Thomas County Board of Education auditorium.

There were eight acts (10 students) in the show. Tra Hallowell won and Afrika Davis was named the runner-up.

“I knew we had great talent in this school and I am glad that we found a way to showcase it,” Central chorus teacher Nicole Davis said.

The winner’s prize is a recording session in the Central studio.

Students auditioned for the chance to perform. Those selected included Valensia Bable, Maggie Bowden, Lindsey Cercy and Justin Pope, Emily Corbitt and Lyndsae Madden, Aaliyah Cheevers, Afrika Davis, Tra Hallowell and Lexi Jones.

“It was so amazing seeing all the great talent coming from the students of TCCHS,” said Zenyth Thomas, guest judge. “Every contestant had a great voice, making it hard to judge, but it will be great to see where they all go as they grow and get better at what they do. I’m proud of all of them for getting up there and giving it a try!”

Yellow Jacket Idol was created in order to raise funds for the Central singer/songwriter and drama clubs.

"It was really cool," said audience member Rachel Glover. "I don't watch American Idol, so I'm guessing the set up was a lot like American Idol, but it's a unique way for raising money for the fine arts department."
