MILLEDGEVILLE — With generous donations from teachers, parents, students and alumni, Baldwin High School’s fine arts program is able to showcase an even more professional sound using a new baby grand piano purchased through the Leave A Legacy campaign’s fundraising efforts.

The 1.5 by 3 inch silver plates have an emblem of the Leave a Legacy logo, the name of the person who purchased the plaque followed by the name of the person in dedication to. With 900 seats available, nearly 35 seats have been sold as of Thursday.

The 6-foot black satin Kawai baby grand piano, expected to arrive at the school today, comes from a church in Tennessee.
