A man whose mark on Statesboro and Bulloch County is indelible was honored Thursday for a lifetime of contributions to the local arts community. Author, playwright, historian, and museum director Dr. Del Presley was celebrated by the Statesboro Arts Council and Averitt Center staff as the newest “Legend in the Arts,” during an induction ceremony hosted by the center. Presley became the fifth person to receive the honor — he joins Emma Kelly (2005), Blind Willie McTell (2007), Dr. Michael Braz (2009), and Roxie Remley (2011).
