MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Sept. 4, 2015) — Milligan College will once again host “Buffalo Tales with the Guild,” featuring members of the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild and Milligan Professor of Communication Dr. Bruce Montgomery on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. in the McGlothlin-Street Theatre located in Milligan’s Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts.

The event is open to the public: General admission is $5 and for students, $3. Proceeds will defray costs for Milligan’s introduction to storytelling class.

Tickets will be sold at the door, which opens at 6:30 p.m.

The featured Guild members who will be performing, along with Montgomery, include Sherril Miller, Leon Overbay, Linda Poland, Madelyn Rohrer and Gary Varner.

“Milligan storytelling students are blessed to have the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild come and share these fun, family friendly stories,” said Montgomery. “The students not only benefit as they learn from the region’s best storytellers, but they also gain the experience of planning and promoting a storytelling event.”

Montgomery loves to use spiritual, biblical and personal stories to make audiences laugh and see the world in new ways. He has a doctorate degree in interpersonal and public communication from Bowling Green State University, along with a master’s degree in divinity from Christian Theological Seminary. This is his 21th year at Milligan.
