ATSU faculty rock out for a good cause

January 4, 2019
Posted In: Uncategorized

The A.T. Still University (ATSU) MEDleys, a student a cappella group, recently held an air guitar contest to raise money for Kirksville High School’s guitar music education program. Megan Howell, OMS II, sings in the Community Chorus, directed by Kirksville High School music teacher Rebecca Murphy. When Howell learned Murphy was raising money to start up a guitar class at the high school, she wanted to help. She and other MEDleymembers came up with the air guitar fundraiser idea.

 ATSU faculty members, who were sponsored by their respective departments, showed off their air guitar skills in righteous fashion. Many dressed in elaborate costumes while rocking out with choreographed routines. BrianDegenhardt, DO, won audience’s performance choice award, and Keith Elmslie, PhD, won most funds raised from his department.

 Overall, the contest raised $1,501, well over the goal amount and enough to purchase all the guitars needed. The class started this semester with 20 students enrolled.

 “This is an opportunity for them to learn a skill that they may not financially be able to access outside of school,” said Murphy.
