Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you have all had a wonderful start to the semester. I am excited to be the newest president of the Kentucky American String Teachers Association for 2014-16, and I would like to introduce our Board of Directors and committee chairpersons. Rebecca Goff is the president-elect, Eva Rouse is the secretary/treasurer, Lorna Pierce is the luncheon committee chair, Sidney King is the collegiate chapter chair, and Josh Rayburn is the web editor. Please feel free to contact us if you ever have any questions, concerns, or news to share.
The annual KYASTA meeting and luncheon will be held in conjunction with the 2015 KMEA Conference at the Bristol Bar and Grille (downtown Louisville) on Friday, February 6th from 12:30-2:00. Please make plans to join us to share information and celebrate our many accomplishments. You can register via Paypal or by mailing payment on or before 1/28/15. Here is a link to the luncheon registration on the KYASTA website: http://www.kyasta.org/annual-luncheon.html
We are also accepting nominations for 2015 awards through 1/28/15. We have amazing string teachers within our KYASTA membership, and we want to recognize some of them for their hard work and dedication. You may submit nominations for teachers in each category.

Even if you can't make it this year, please give us your award nominations and continue to update me on what's happening at your school throughout the year. Have a great week and stay warm!
