Tuesday, November 27, 2012

DAYTON, Tenn. – Melissa Smith, a sophomore music/piano pedagogy major at Bryan College, recently earned an honorable mention rating at a collegiate piano competition at Belmont University.

Melissa, daughter of Mike and Cheryl Smith of Mt. Juliet, competed against 14 students, including undergraduate and graduate students from institutions in Tennessee. The competition was sponsored by the Tennessee Music Teachers Association.

Dr. Sigrid Luther, professor of music said Melissa’s accomplishment is remarkable. “For Melissa, a piano pedagogy major, to compete against piano performance majors, some of them graduate students, and receive an honorable mention was quite an accomplishment!”

Next school year, Melissa will serve as accompanist for the Bryan Chamber Singers.

Bryan is a Christian liberal arts college offering two Master’s degrees and Bachelor’s degrees in 20 areas. The college has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report for 17 consecutive years as being among the Top Tier of Southern comprehensive colleges.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Each year on the fourth Saturday in October, volunteers from coast to coast pull out their can-do spirit and vow to improve their communities on Make A Difference Day, a national day of service.

On Oct. 27, local Modern Woodmen of America members joined this nationwide effort.

Members of Modern Woodmen made a difference by shopping for the wish list at Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter and the New Leash on Life Shelter in Lebanon.  Several local chapters together purchased over $1,250 worth of supplies for the two organizations.

“On Make A Difference Day, our members can look forward to feeling good by doing good and being part of a nationally recognized event,” says Kevin Copeland, local Modern Woodmen contact.

Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs. Youth service clubs provide young Modern Woodmen members with opportunities to volunteer, be patriotic, learn new skills, make friends and have fun.

For more information or to get involved, contact Kevin Copeland, Managing Partner at (615)925-0660, or stop by the office in Lebanon at 1020 North Castle Heights Ave.

As a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen sells life insurance, annuity and investment* products not to benefit stockholders but to improve the quality of life of its stakeholders – members, their families and their communities. This is accomplished through social, charitable and volunteer activities. Annually, Modern Woodmen and its members provide more than $26 million and 1 million volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
