MJ's Smith earns honor
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.

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.
