Chorus Receives Distinction
Congratulations to the Woodford County Middle School’s Eighth Grade Chamber Chorus on their “Distinguished” ratings recently at the KMEA State Assessment Festival in Lexington. The students performed two prepared selections for three judges and were required to sight-read for a separate judge (sight reading is being able to sing on pitch a piece of music without first rehearsing it.) The chorus received the distinguished rating in both areas, which is the highest possible rating a group can receive.
Midway College Announces Scholarship for Adults
A scholarship fund has been established to assist adults wishing to complete their bachelor’s degree in order to find new employment or advance in a current career, Midway College announced today. “In keeping with our 160-year history of serving the underserved, I have established a scholarship fund which, when combined with other sources of financial aid, may pay the total cost of dislocated workers’ bachelor’s degrees. These funds are substantial, but limited, and will be awarded on a first come-first served basis,” said Dr. William B. Drake, Jr., president of Midway College.
Dr. Drake said that in today’s tough economic climate, college graduates are much more likely to keep their jobs than non-graduates. In addition, college graduates have nearly twice the earning power of high school graduates.
Interested students may enroll now through mid-May for accelerated degree programs in Business, Human Resource Management, Health Care Administration, Pre-Nursing, and Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Current locations include Midway and Lexington campuses, Hazard at HCTC, and Maysville at MCTC. Visit www.midway.edu or call (800) 755-0031.
