A standing-room-only crowd of about 300 people, many of them under 18, heard U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Brandon Cordill express why he never let obstacles curtail his career dream.
Cordill, a Hemet, California, native, stood before them Friday, June 13, in the MTSU Business and Aerospace Building’s State Farm Lecture Hall as a pilot with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team. The Blue Angels will fly in the annual Great Tennessee Air Show June 14-15 in Smyrna, Tennessee, with MTSU serving as one of the sponsors.
MTSU students John Coulston and Kimi Thompson are enjoying this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival from a unique vantage point.
They are among a select team from the College of Mass Communication providing multimedia coverage of the world-famous music event for The Tennessean and other media platforms, thanks to a partnership initiated by Dean Ken Paulson.
“They are having a terrific time,” Paulson said of the student team. “It’s a great educational experience for them and they get to cover the music they love up close.”
Chais Music Hall in downtown Wartrace will present a stroll down a musical memory lane with an Evening with Friends dinner show on Friday, June 13th. The Show features Joe Peters and LeRoy Wells with oldies and the menu will feature catfish, hush puppies, cole slaw, drinks and dessert. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
