The Bulloch County Historical Society this week honored one of its founding members, Del Presley, with its first-ever Distinguished Fellow Award, and two artists who have brought the arts and history together, Michael Braz and Mical Whitaker, with lifetime honorary memberships. "Earlier this summer, you changed the bylaws to allow us formally to select and to recognize individuals whose contributions to the community and to the society are so significant that they deserve special, permanent recognition," Historical Society President Joe McGlamery reminded members Monday. "Today, we honor three such individuals."
