Recording industry major Micah Jones had just begun an internship with a company on Nashville’s Music Row MTSU when a car struck her July 9, 2004. The impact of the collision propelled her into the air, and her head landed on a metal grate.
She spent six weeks in a coma in hospitals in both Nashville and her native Ohio. She was still in the hospital when her parents accepted her diploma for her at commencement.
