New Band of Pride Director

BHS Band director

Please join me in welcoming Mr. Lee Ritchie to Bowdon High School as the director of the BHS Band of Pride!

Mr. Lee Ritchie is a Carroll County native, attending the Carroll County Schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade. After earning his Bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of West Georgia, he went on to teach for Carroll County Schools for the next five years, beginning his career at Mt. Zion Elementary School, followed by four years at Roopville Elementary School.

For the past five years, he has been the Director of Bands at Columbus High School in Columbus, GA.

Mr. Ritchie continues to be an active performer in addition to his teaching, and regularly can be found with various community and church ensembles.

He looks forward to returning home to Carroll County and is proud to join the Red Devil family! #ForksUp
