Hayride history: Tracey Widiger Laird

Tracey Laird was a witty, what-if-we-did-this class president at Caddo Magnet High School in 1988. Today she is assistant professor of music at Agnes Scott College in Athens, GA. A musicologist who earned her PhD from the University of Michigan, she has written a book entitled Louisiana Haryride: Radio and Roots along the Red River. The author is married to writer/teacher Brandon Laird, also CMHS '88. The Magneteers have an eight year-old named Zoey. See more about her book at the Oxford University Press US website.

Hi - I randomly found your site but I just wanted to let you know that Agnes Scott is in Decatur, GA, not Athens. You are right saying that Dr. Laird is great though - we all love her:)
