A couple of locals got their golden tickets Thursday night.
Woodville-Tompkins student Jordan Brisbane is going to Hollywood as a participant selected to audition for "American Idol".
The school held a surprise send off for Brisbane earlier Thursday afternoon.
"This surprise was very surreal, you know?" he said. "Seeing all my friends congratulating me on my success has just been a blessing."
Another local, Laquan Fields of St. Helena Island also got his golden ticket tonight.
Fields is best friends with last season's "Idol" winner, Candice Glover.
