Roshawn White Jr.
Band star didn’t make homecoming game
He was the comedian of his high school’s marching band, one of 10 brothers. Every evening, he and his family sat down together and discussed their days.
He was practicing for the band’s performance at his high school’s homecoming game. "He kept the band going and just kept the band in good spirit,” Glenn Hills’ band director said. “Whenever you were having a bad day, he would definitely make you smile."
Roshawn White Jr., 17, known as “Roach” by his friends, was shot in an attempted robbery in front of a grocery store in Augusta, Georgia, on Sept. 30, 2018.
