The University of Montevallo was well-represented in late July at the Alabama Possible Higher Education Alliance Summer Workshop. Attendees included Tom Sanders, college of business; Courtney Bentley, teacher leadership; Hollie Cost, service learning and special education; Jessica Merchant, counseling and career center; and UM students Patrick Johnson, Natasha Langner and Jennifer Gabel. Karen Pendleton, director of UM partner agency Shelby Emergency Assistance, also attended with the group. The workshop was titled “Developing a Long-Term Vision to Unlock Alabama’s Potential.”
Scott Meyer, art, has been selected for inclusion in a book, Wood-Fired Ceramics — 100 Contemporary Artists, by Amedeo Salamoni. The book, to be published later this year by Schiffer Publishing LTD, presents a worldwide survey of artists, their works, kilns and philosophies. All of Meyer’s included works were fired in Fat Bastard, the UM anagama kiln.
