It’s official: Shorter’s application for admission into the NCAA Division II membership process has been accepted! President Dr. Don Dowless delivered the exciting news during a recent press conference to a room nearly overflowing with faculty, staff, students, members of the Rome community and media. In the photo above, Dr. Dowless (center), along with Dr. Nelson Price, chairman of the board of trustees (left), and Shorter Athletic Director Bill Peterson (right), are shown proudly holding commemorative T-shirts printed for the special announcement.
Did you know that the Shorter Chorale has been invited to sing at the 2012 Southern Division American Choral Directors Association Conference? It’s a very prestigious invitation, and the Chorale was just one of 18 ensembles selected to perform out of a pool of more than 100. Their acceptance was based on several years’ worth of recordings and, as director Martha Shaw (’80) puts it, “shows a pattern of consistently excellent performance.” This will mark the first time that the Shorter Chorale has been asked to perform at the regional ACDA conference.
Head back to the Hill for Homecoming 2011! We have two days’ worth of exciting activities planned on Oct. 14 and 15, including a picnic in the Front Circle, a Friday night pep-rally, basketball and baseball games for alums, tailgating and football. You can expect to receive a special publication in your mailbox soon that includes Homecoming details and a registration form. Hope to see you in October!
