Michael Cooke Remembered
Please join the Greer Cultural Arts Council as we mourn the loss of a great man, Michael Cooke.
He graced our theatrical stages, he volunteered at all of our events, he served on our Board of Directors, and most of all, he was our friend.
Mr. Cooke shared his time and talent with GCAC in many ways, but his heart was dedicated to the girl scouts. He was an Honorary Life-Time Girl Scout. For many years he conducted our Girl Scout back stage tours. In his honor we are creating a new Girl Scout Patch called The Michael Cooke “I did it” Back Stage Tour badge.
