People will be able to tour the new Aaron Cohn Middle School following a dedication program on Aug. 11.

The program will be at 3 p.m. in the school gymnasium.

Classes begin in the school on Aug. 7.

The school of which Richard Green is principal is located at 7352 Garrett Road in Midland, Ga.

The Muscogee County School Board approved the naming of the school after the former juvenile court judge in August 2012.

Cohn, a graduate of Columbus High and the University of Georgia, died at 96 on July 4, 2012.

Cohn served as a juvenile court judge for 46 years. He was a Bronze Star recipient during World War II.

The motion to name the school after Cohn was made by District 6 board representative Mark Cantrell who called Cohn "a true champion for our children."

On the evening of the vote, District 2 board representative John Wells called Cohn "a great man."
