Hughes comes to Tusculum College with experience in marketing, fundraising, strategic planning and working with students through the enrollment process. She will take over responsibilities at Tusculum College on April 7.

“We are very pleased that LeAnn Hughes will be joining us at Tusculum College,” said Moody. “Her experience and success in enrollment management and marketing will support continuing success at the college in recruiting both adult and traditional age students. She will also bring expertise to our rejuvenated branding and marketing efforts in both traditional and emerging venues.”

Hughes began her career at King University in July 2002 in the position of director of communications. She served as vice president of marketing and development and most recently as King’s vice president of marketing and enrollment management, where she was heavily engaged in efforts to expand the Graduate & Professional Studies and online programs.

She was also instrumental in King’s 14 years of record enrollment. At King she served as a member of the president’s five-member cabinet, responsible for the strategic visioning process of the college and implementing policies and procedures.

“I am delighted to be a part of Tusculum College and look forward to applying my skills and background to such an exceptional institution,” said Hughes. “It is an honor to have been selected for the position, and I anticipate a mutually exciting and rewarding opportunity as we work to reach Tusculum’s enrollment and marketing strategic goals.”

Hughes has previously served as the director of marketing and sports development for the Kingsport Area Chamber of Commerce; marketing and events director for the Downtown Kingsport Association and computer instructor/publications director for Bailey Computing Technologies, Inc. She was a member of the 2001-2002 Leadership Kingsport Class.

Hughes earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where she was initiated into Phi Beta Kappa and a Master of Arts degree in English from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn., graduating in the top two percent of her class.

Doak House Museum wins Tennessee Association of Museums award

Posted on 26 March 2014 by srichey@tusculum.edu

The Doak House Museum was honored at the Tennessee Association of Museums annual meeting held recently in Greeneville. The museum won an Award of Commendation in the Temporary Exhibition category for its “Historic Textiles Popup Exhibit.” The exhibit was part of the 2013 Old Oak Festival.

The staff of the museum displayed virtually all of the Doak House’s textiles, quilts, hand-woven coverlets and fine embroidery work for the last two days of the festival. “Some of these pieces have never been viewed by the public due to their fragile nature,” said Leah Walker, site and events manager for the Museums of Tusculum.

“We were thrilled to be able to allow visitors to see the amazing handiwork of generations past.”

According to Walker, those who viewed the exhibit were astounded by the fine needle work and craft that went into the pieces of the collection.

At the conference awards dinner, Museums of Tusculum Director Dollie Boyd accepted the honor from the Tennessee Association of Museums President Adam Alfrey.

“We are very pleased to have been recognized in this way and want to thank the state association for all the work they do on behalf of Tennessee museums large and small,” said Boyd.

Non-profit partners sought for partnership with grant writing course at Tusculum College

Posted on 21 March 2014 by srichey@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College is seeking local, non-profit agencies to participate as community partners in a new grant writing course beginning Monday, April 14.

Any local, registered 501(c)3 non-profit interested working with students to have a grant application written for the agency during the term of the course is invited to apply to participate. Agencies that are willing to seek to become registered are encouraged to apply as well.

“The goal of the class is for every student to write at least one grant,” said Dr. Michael Bodary, assistant professor of English at Tusculum College. “Ideally we will have one to two students working with each community agency to get a feel of how they work, to learn their mission and goals and to learn the needs of the organization.”

Students will learn during class how to identify grants, as well as how to write them, said Dr. Bodary. He added that working with a community partner, writing an actual grant to be submitted and in the process helping an organization that serves the betterment of the community will energize the students and help them to understand the power of what they are able to do.

“Our goal is to write a minimum of $20,000 worth of grants for local organizations during the 18 days of the block program course.”

Agencies will be asked to participate in class and share information with students to help them accurately prepare grant applications. Any agency interested in participating should contact Dr. Bodary at mbodary@tusculum.edu by Friday, April 11.

All applications will be reviewed and selections of agencies will be made during the first week of class.

“Connecting the curriculum of the course to helping these agencies achieve their goals with additional funding opportunities ties in so well with the Civic Arts mission of Tusculum College,” said Dr. Bodary. “We will try to pair students with an organization with which they have a personal connection to enhance the experience even further.”

‘Charles Tunstall’s World of Guitar’ scheduled for Tuesday, March 25

‘Charles Tunstall’s World of Guitar’ scheduled for Tuesday, March 25

Posted on 19 March 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Charles Tunstall

The versatility of the classical acoustic guitar and its adaptability to a variety of musical styles will be featured in Charles Tunstall’s recital Tuesday, March 25, at Tusculum College.

“Charles Tunstall’s World of Guitar” will begin at 6 p.m. in the lobby of the Thomas J. Garland Library on campus. This performance was previously scheduled in January, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

The performance will feature guitar music from the Renaissance to the present. Styles will include classical, sacred, folk, popular tunes from the 1960s, Broadway show tunes and more.

The recital will include some personal sacred and jazz arrangements by Tunstall, a new show-tune medley, a new 1960s medley and two or three surprise guests to accompany him on some songs.

The musical program will introduce the classical (nylon-string) guitar and the literature from several periods to the audience. Tunstall will demonstrate the versatility of the familiar instrument through his musical selections that incorporate a number of different playing styles, various voicings, chords, playing techniques and discussion about leading guitarists of the present and the past. In his program, Tunstall hopes to help the audience better understand the acoustic style of music and playing as opposed to electric or synthesized guitar music.

Tunstall, who is reference and instructional services librarian at Tusculum, has more than 50 years of playing experience. Primarily self-taught, he has been mentored by a large number of individuals. Although he prefers to entertain as a solo act, he has played in a variety of bands through the years. While he is skilled on several types of guitars, his main focus is in finger-style playing on the classical nylon-stringed guitar. He emerged from a country-bluegrass background and now enjoys playing and learning music from different periods.

As a guitarist, he has been inspired by Christopher Parkening, Chet Atkins, Rick Foster and Charlie Byrd, and he has had the opportunity to meet Parkening and Byrd.

Admission to the recital is free. Refreshments will be served, and arts and lecture credit is available for Tusculum College residential students.

Students travel to Barcelona for English study-abroad course

Students travel to Barcelona for English study-abroad course

Posted on 18 March 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

On January 14-25, 12 Tusculum College students studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain, alongside Heather Patterson, chair of the Tusculum College English department and associate professor of English, as a part of Tusculum’s global studies program.

As part of the course “Seminar in Literature and Society,” the class focused on how writers respond to or take the lead on topics of global importance, the complexity of world issues and the diversity of perspectives internationally.

Students participating included Meagan Talley, a junior math education major from Fairview; Jessica Kagias, a junior education major from Middlesboro, Ky.; Melissa Mauceri, a senior journalism major from Pigeon Forge; Herchell Bridges, a junior athletic training major from Fairview; Destini Wingerter, a senior English major from Bristol; Katie Capel, a senior digital media major from Waverly; Carnes White, a junior creative writing major from Montgomery, Ala.; Andrew Hollingshead, a sophomore graphic design major from Tellico Plains;  Jeffery Peck, a junior business management major from Tazewell; Trenikia Shelton, a senior journalism major from Memphis; Andrea Wilcox, a junior athletic training major from Knoxville, and Amanda Grempel, a senior athletic training major from Blakeslee, Pa.

Andrew Hollingshead of Tellico Plains visits the National Catalan Museum of Art in Barcelona, Spain. He was one of 12 Tusculum College students who participated in a study abroad English course earlier this semester.

Students visited several sites and went on many tours in Barcelona, including the George Orwell walking tour. For the class students had been assigned to read Orwell’s “Homage to Catalonia. On the tour they visited the Museum of the History of the City, as well as a cathedral during the walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. They took an excursion of Montserrat, home to the Virgin of Montserrat, and a tour of La Sagrada Familia. Other stops included a visit to the National Museum of Catalan Art and tours of Eixample, which gave students a chance to learn about Modernista architecture, and El Borne.

“Barcelona was the most beautiful place I have ever been,” said Talley. “Learning about a place while actually being there was an experience I will never forget,” added Wingerter. “Barcelona was by far the most incredible journey I have ever experienced. The city was beautiful, and I hope I get a chance to visit it again someday.”

The students all seemed to be struck by Barcelona’s beauty. Hollingshead said, “My favorite part of Barcelona was relaxing and reading in the garden and the beautiful photogenic opportunities of the city.”

After returning to Tusculum the group shared their experience with a photo presentation of their academic trip for the campus population. The students described all of the tours and talked about Barcelona’s history and culture.

Students in Tusculum College’s “Seminar in Literature and Society” course visited several sites in Barcelona, Spain that were influential to the writers they were studying, including the Cathedral at Montserrat.

Psychology students and faculty participate in professional conference

Psychology students and faculty participate in professional conference

Posted on 17 March 2014 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Students and faculty members of the Tusculum College psychology department recently participated in the Southeastern Psychological Association’s 60th annual Conference in Nashville, Tenn.

Participating were students Thomas Bitner; a junior from Chuckey; Taira Peters, a junior from Rogersville; Theo Oing, a senior from Chattanooga; Melinda Franklin, a senior from Concord, N.C.; Jade Bussell, a senior from Harrogate, and Robert Arrowood, a senior from Erwin. Faculty included Dr. Brian Pope, professor of psychology; Dr. Bill Garris, associate professor of psychology, and Dr. Stephen Nettelhorst, associate professor of psychology.

Tusculum students and faculty presented five posters based upon original research conducted during the 2013-2014 year. The topics they researched and shared included Bitner, Dr. Pope, Peters and Dr. Tom Harlow’s work on the relationship between stereotype threat, positive emotions and athletic performance.  Harlow is associate professor of psychology at Tusculum College.

According to their research, the expectation was the stereotype threat “your group does poorly on this task” would impair athletic performance.

A second project by Oing, Dr. Pope, Franklin and Lawson considered the effect of ego depletion on videogame performance.

The research reported that the expectation was that as people experienced a frustrating situation, their performance on a videogame task would decrease.

Dr. Nettelhorst presented two studies pertaining to consumer psychology. The first examined how individuals use customer reviews and ratings to evaluate products on online marketplaces such as Amazon.com. The second investigated whether individuals’ decisions to skip an advertisement on online streaming sites (e.g. Hulu.com, YouTube.com, etc.) were influenced by factors such as the actor’s attractiveness and the viewer’s choice to view or not view the ad.

Arrowood and Dr. Garris explored how thinking about one’s own death might influence his or her sexual interest.

The theory and prior research predicted that contemplating death would increase an interest in sex, similar to the intense romantic feelings one might feel before being called off to war. However, there was a mild dampening of sexual interest, which could be attributed to the religious values the subjects may have that were elevated when the subjects thought about “meeting their maker.”

“This conference is always an important experience for our students because of the opportunities for professional growth and networking within the discipline,” said Dr. Pope.

While Arrowood, Franklin, Bussell and Dr. Garris did not find results that supported their theory, a number of other researchers at the conference said they had also experienced a failure to replicate in the same research area, which led to engaging conversations and networking about common interests.

Dr. Pope said that the psychology department strongly encourages its students to pursue research. He added, that by conducting research, students develop skills in data collection and data analysis that will help them not only in graduate school but also in their chosen professions.
