Milligan presents 9th annual ‘Buffalo Tales’ on Dec. 1
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Nov. 22, 2016) – Milligan College students will share their storytelling talent during the ninth annual “Buffalo Tales” on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 6:30 p.m. in Milligan’s McGlothlin-Street Theatre located in the Gregory Center. This event is free and open to the public.
“Buffalo Tales” serves as the fall semester final exam for Milligan’s storytelling students as well as an opportunity for them to showcase the skills they learned under Dr. Bruce Montgomery, Milligan professor of communications.
“I came to the class afraid of public speaking,” said sophomore Jordyn Morel, Fort Wayne, Indiana, who will be performing at “Buffalo Tales.” “The thought of speaking in front of people still makes me nervous, but this class has taught me the value and beauty of storytelling.”
Montgomery said it’s common for students taking the class to feel apprehensive at first.
“But students who take the storytelling class leave with a new and positive perspective of public speaking,” said Montgomery. “We have a talented group of students this year who have shown great progress in the art of selecting, crafting and delivering stories. They’re sure to provide an evening of great family entertainment.”
