Northeast Field House Naming Ceremony Set for Thursday | Families
The Northeast Field House will be named for the late football player, Albert 'Al' James Lucas in a ceremony Thursday.
That comes after the Board of Education voted in January to grant the request for the dedication, according to a release.
Lucas, a Northeast High graduate and football player, played professional football for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers.
The ceremony takes place at the school Thursday, March 21 at 3 p.m.
Lucas was the son of State Sen. David Lucas and Macon City Councilwoman Elaine Lucas.
