Martin Methodist Sport Management Students Participate in Ticket Sales Boot Camp
February 14, 2018February 11, 2018 – On Sunday afternoon, Martin Methodist College Sport Management students had the opportunity to learn from one of sports’ leading experts in ticket sales and customer service as part of an afternoon seminar. The event entitled Sports Industry Fast Pass “Boot Camp” was conducted by Marty Mulford, Senior Director of Service and Retention for the Nashville Predators. The 4-hour “Boot Camp” included lecture, discussion, interaction, and role-playing as students were introduced to the world of ticket sales and its importance within the sports industry. Tim Wilson, Assistant Professor of Sport Management, stated, “This event was something Marty and I have been working on since last semester. I was able to secure a Tennessee Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (TAHPERD) grant that provided the funds to bring him to our campus and allow our Sport Management students the opportunity to learn from one of the best. I want to thank TAHPERD for providing the funds and Marty for being willing to come on a Sunday afternoon and be with us. This was a great event for Martin Methodist Sport Management students”. The event provided the students an opportunity to hear first-hand what it takes to get into the sports industry and how ticket sales can be a great starting point. Dalton Searcy, a senior sport management student from Knoxville, Tennessee, added, “Mr. Mulford’s expertise and experience in the field provided great insight as to what it takes to get started on the sales side of the sports industry. I would like to thank Mr. Mulford, Mr. Wilson, and Martin Methodist for providing us this unique opportunity”.
Martin Methodist kicks off the holidays with a Christmas play
December 1, 2017Martin Methodist College’s (MMC) Dramatic Arts Program will present a children’s stage adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story “A Christmas Carol.” English Professor Dr. Kayla Wiggins adapted the story to the stage and serves as the director. “When Charles Dickens wrote ‘A Christmas Carol,’ he kicked off a vogue for Christmas ghost stories and produced the best-loved and most-adapted Christmas novel of all time,” said Wiggins. “I have been a lifelong fan of Dickens’ tale, and I’ve read it every Christmas for over 30 years. I wanted to present a version of the story that would speak to modern children but still interest adults and keep the flavor of Dickens’ wonderful writing. I also wanted everyone to have fun, and I think we’ve achieved that.” The cast and crew comprise a group of MMC students that features both new and returning faces to the drama department. The cast features Robert Austell as Ebenezer Scrooge, and includes Sydney Gregory, Candace Henshaw, Skylar Lovvo, Bryce McMillan, Corey Nave, Jessica Sudduth, Maggie Walker, Dana White, Savannah Wilbanks, Lydia Wossum-Fisher, and Kyla Young. Annslee Swann serves as the stage manager, and Chris Allen serves as the student director. The production will be held on December 10 at 6:30 p.m. and December 11 at 12:30 p.m. in the Martin Hall Auditorium. Admission is free, and the community is encouraged to attend. ...
