Family firsts—A recent event on campus brought together Regions Bank executives and Birmingham-Southern alums who work for Regions to meet the more than 40 BSC student recipients of the Regions Scholarships for First Generation College Students. The gathering gave Regions the chance to meet these student recipients, and the students got the opportunity to say “thank you” in person to those who have invested in their futures. Those in attendance included C. Dowd Ritter '69, president and CEO of Regions Financial Corp. and chair of the BSC Board of Trustees, incoming Regions CEO Grayson Hall, and the Executive Council of Regions. The gathering was held in Hulsey Hall of the Admission Welcome Center.
A musical homecoming—The BSC Concert Choir recently concluded its annual spring tour of three Alabama cities and Memphis and is preparing for its Homecoming Concert on Sunday, April 11, at 4 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in downtown Birmingham. Performances of major works will include “Jubilate Deo” by Giovanni Gabrieli, “Making of the Drum” by Bob Chilcott, and “Gloria” by Dan Locklair. The last work will be accompanied by a double-brass ensemble and multiple percussions. The choir is pictured here performing at First United Methodist Church of Tuscaloosa while on tour. BSC Music Department Chair Dr. James Cook '68 is conducting the Concert Choir while Dr. Lester Seigel '79, Joseph Hugh Thomas Professor of Music and director of choral activities, is enjoying a sabbatical leave.
