MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (Nov. 15, 2010) — Students in Milligan College’s Introduction to Storytelling class will share their talents at the third annual “Tales from Buffalo Creek” on Thursday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in Milligan’s Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

“I’m very proud of the students’ progress and the creativity they display in their stories,” said Dr. Bruce Montgomery, professor of communications and business and a member of the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild.

The event will feature stories performed by 10 Milligan students, including local students Chase Boyer, of Johnson City; Corri Richardson and Walter Hendrickson III, both of Kingsport; and Bristol resident Kelly DeVault. Other performers include Sidney Burns, Brittany Chambers, Lee Lindsey, Ren Reed, Ben Sharp and Un-Ace Wright.

Stories drawn from personal experiences, Bible stories and children’s literature will entertain, inspire and touch audience members of all ages.

“This is a great event to help the students refine their storytelling skills and entertain the Milligan community in a family-friendly way,” said Montgomery.
