The 72-Hour Film Festival, an annual event hosted by Trevecca SGA, was canceled this year because of lack of participation.

Three of the five groups that were originally registered dropped out, so SGA officials decided not to spend money on prizes, food and drinks, said Laura Beth Winchester, SGA social life director.

The two remaining groups made their films before getting word the event, originally scheduled for April 5, was canceled.

Center for Music and Worship Arts celebrates grand opening

By Bailey Basham

After more than 14 months of construction, work on the Jackson Center for Music and Worship Arts is complete. The university will celebrate its opening and dedication with a week of concerts in the performance hall.

The university closed the $1.4 million real estate deal in Dec. 2015 on the land that formerly belonged to Volunteer Trucking Company and renovations on the existing buildings on the property began soon after.

The Jackson Center for Music and Worship arts, named in honor of William R. Jackson’s music-loving mother and daughter, is home to the Department of Music, the Center of Worship Arts and the National Praise and Worship Institute (NPWI).

First Generation Graduate Hired as Diversity Coordinator

By Bailey Basham

When Brodrick Thomas was younger, it was his dream to play football at Auburn. For Thomas, however, getting through school wasn’t easy.

“My mom dropped out of junior high school, so she didn’t have any education and didn’t really understand it very much. My dad died when I was in fifth grade, and she had to take on multiple jobs to keep us fed and under shelter. She didn’t have the knowledge to help me, but she was always a strong advocate of education,” said Thomas. “When I first went to college, my mom had no idea of how to help me in any way.”
