PSC music education chapter wins statewide award, Tecumseh junior named Nebraska's collegiate chair

 

(Peru, Neb.) Peru State College’s (PSC) National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Collegiate Chapter was recently recognized with the Nebraska Music Education Association’s (NMEA) statewide Chapter of Distinction Award at the groups’ annual conference.

 

The Chapter of Distinction Award honor groups that exceed expectations and stand out in their promotion of the future of music education. Specifically, it recognizes excellence in chapter operations, service and professional development.

 

Jacob Buss, a junior music education major from Tecumseh and president of Peru State’s NAfME Collegiate Chapter, was elected by his peers at the same conference to serve as the organization’s statewide collegiate chair.

 

Dr. Thomas Ediger, PSC music professor and NAfME chapter advisor, said, “The NAfME chapter has been active on our campus with many projects, including assisting with Music Department events. I am proud of our chapter’s continued efforts to promote music and music education in Nebraska. That the Peru Chapter is honored statewide as a ‘Chapter of Distinction’ is a credit to the college.”

 

Buss said, “I am so proud of our college chapter. Our members put in a lot of hard work throughout the year and are very deserving of this recognition. I’m also excited to serve on the NEMA board for the next two years. It’s a great honor to be elected to it, and I look forward to representing Peru State College on a state level.”
