Jenny Wehunt, of Jasper, Ga., is Selected to Participate in Reinhardt University's Convocation of Artists & Scholars

2014 Apr 8

Reinhardt’s best student minds and talent convened the week of March 31 for the University’s Sixth Annual Robert L. Driscoll Convocation of Artists & Scholars (COAS). The week featured music recitals, creative writing readings, a student research conference, a student-teacher portfolio exhibit, student art and science exhibits, an international culture fest and a communications conference.

“The purpose of the COAS is to show off the best work of our best students,” said Dr. Wayne Glowka, dean of arts and humanities. “The experience affirms for them their sense of accomplishment and pride in a job well done.

“The students performed music, read from their creative writing, competed in a speech contest, exhibited art, and talked about their research, internships, and international experiences,” continued Glowka. “It is heartwarming to hear young minds report on the process of discovery and to experience the freshness of their artistic sensibilities.”

One of the students selected to present in COAS was Jenny Wehunt, a senior from Jasper, Ga., who partipated in the Music Presentations. She played "Canzone" by Barber on flute..

“An important part of the liberal arts experience is gaining confidence in one’s abilities as a scholar or artist,” Glowka said. “Many universities have research conferences, but our convocation is unique in the breadth and diversity of its presentations. We are showing off how we educate the ‘whole’ student.”
