— For almost three decades, the Governor's School for the Arts has nurtured the “creative spark” of young Tennesseans with a love for music, theatre, visual arts, dance and filmmaking.
As the program kicked off its 30th anniversary this week at MTSU, the man who founded the statewide summer programs for gifted high schoolers said his goal remains the same for each participant: "aim for the top."
It's a good thing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart doesn't have an Internet connection. If he could see what happened to Time for Three violinist - Zachary De Pue this week, he might turn over in his grave. A flight attendant on his US Airways flight to Fayetteville, Arkansas, wouldn't let De Pue take the precious violin on board with him. He insisted he turn the sensitive instrument in as checked baggage. Concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, De Pue, didn't make the flight.
The MTSU Police Department will be conducting a series of free RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) classes in June for all interested female MTSU students, faculty and staff as well as the general public.
The Rape Aggression Defense Class is a program of realistic defense tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive course for women with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance and progresses to the basics of hands-on defense training. The course is taught by certified RAD instructors.
