Bio

Clay Hess is a Grammy award winner who first burst upon the national bluegrass music scene as the red-hot-flat-picking guitarist with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, with whom he toured for three years. With his awesome speed and tasty sense of syncopation, Hess has established himself as one of the top flat-pickers in the business. He lends his talents and experience to the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music as an instructor of traditional stringed instruments.  

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

BA Convergent Media, Toledo, OH"Dance has always been something I have enjoyed and I'm very passionate about the program here at MSU. The dance minor offers numerous opportunities to get involved. Members strive to maintain academic excellence and work to keep a dance focus in the community. We do flash mobs, workshops, fundraisers, community service projects on and off campus, and teach dance classes at local elementary and high schools. I feel like the program offers students unlimited opportunities and allows you to build bonds with your professors that go outside the classroom."
