GRIFFIN, Ga. (AP) -- A high school student died after becoming
ill following a performance with the school's drum line.

The Griffin-Spalding County school system said in a release that
Michael Hollis died Friday at the Spalding Regional Hospital.

He had performed with the Griffin High School's drum line at a
local elementary school earlier Friday when he became ill.

Superintendent Dr. Curtis Jones said he has known Hollis for
years and he was "very proud of what he has been able to
accomplish."

He said counselors are meeting with students and staff at the
school.
