WAU Represented at the Margaret McNamara Education Grants Annual Arts and Crafts Fair

Recently the School of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Faculty of Music Therapy was asked to perform at the Margaret McNamara Education Grants (MMEG) Annual Arts and Crafts Fair at The World Bank Group. This participation was a plan of action by SGPS to support MMEG in their annual fundraising and to expand WAU’s SGPS presence and branding through the nation’s capital. 

The MMEG Annual Arts and Crafts Fair raises funds to continue awarding education grants to women in developing countries. At the fair, Dr. Alicia Barksdale and music therapy students Sarah Monroe, Julia Reznikov, and Sabria Richardson performed classical and modern pieces of music that created a peaceful and angelic atmosphere for fair participants. 

Marta Gonzales, MMEG Head of Communication, expressed that she was delighted and impressed by the performance of the Music Therapy Students. 

The music therapy students were honored to perform at the fair and enjoyed the opportunity to represent WAU and the growing field of music therapy. One student was quoted as saying, “This was a good experience for us, because we had to plan and agree between our classmates and Dr. Barksdale about the music we were to sing and play. Also, we were a little nervous, but I am happy that everything went alright.”  

After the performance, the School of Graduate and Professional Studies advisors Carol Cogen and Dr. Harris continued WAU’s SGPS presence at the fair by sharing information about the SGPS programs.
