We were looking for someone with administrative abilities and someone who has a love and an appreciation of the arts. Vicki met all of the criteria for doing this job.”Gibson said the mission of the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center is to provide cultural enrichment to all citizens through education in and exposure to the arts. Sponsored Content Pritchett said there are people in Pike and surrounding counties “who don’t know we’re here.”But as the Center reaches out to the community, those who don’t know the Center is there will soon found out.“We want to increase the foot traffic at the Johnson Center but we also want to reach into the schools through our Art Bridges program,” Pritchett said. “We are going to take the Center to the schools.”Pritchett said, through the Art Bridges workshops, teachers would have opportunities to write lesson plans that relate to the Common Core State Standards.“We want to expand the teacher workshops to include middle school teachers as well as elementary teachers,” she said. “Art can be incorporated throughout the curriculum and we want to assist teachers with the many ways to use art in the classroom.”Pritchett said studies have shown that students who participate in the arts have more confidence in themselves, greater self-esteem and a greater desire to continue in school and do better and be better.Another goal that Pritchett has set is to increase the number of docents and volunteers at the Johnson Center for the Arts to assist with programs and workshops offered by the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center.“I’m excited to be here and I’m looking forward to all the opportunities ahead,” Pritchett said. “I’ve got a great staff to work with in Wiley White, development coordinator, and Walter Black, exhibition coordinator, and a talented and progressive board of directors. I couldn’t be happier to be the executive director of the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center.” Print Article And she couldn’t be more appreciative of the opportunity or more excited about the possibilities.“As a cultural arts center, we should embrace our culture,” Pritchett said. “We should embrace who we are, not just on canvas but in art, in music, in dance, in storytelling – in all of the arts. At the Johnson Center for the Arts, we want to embrace our culture and the people right here at home.”In so doing, Pritchett said the foot traffic at the Johnson Center would increase.“I can envision a wildlife exhibit here,” she said. “That would bring in people who probably have never been interested in coming before. If we have exhibitions of sports art and religious art, we are going to attract more people. We want to reach out from the Johnson Center to people with varied interest. We want to expand beyond 2D art with musical performances — gospel music and bluegrass music. We want to feature dance – ballet and clogging. We want to embrace our culture.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Skip Book Nook to reopen TPCAC announces new director By The Penny Hoarder Published 11:00 pm Monday, February 10, 2014 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img read more

Tyson Fury mocks Anthony Joshua

first_imgTyson Fury launched an astonishing rant on Anthony Joshua during lockdown when asked about the pair potentially trading punches in the future.“The Gypsy King” was on top form when discussing the bout with Jamie and Harry Redknapp on their new Sky series: “Home Fixture.” Fury, 31, blasted AJ’s technical ability and defence, before completely shutting down any notion of a victory for the unified champion if they meet.As WBC title-holder, Fury has the opportunity to take him every single belt on offer, which many believe he will do if Joshua agrees to the fight.Outlining what happens if they ever lock horns, Fury was certainly adamant Joshua would hit the canvas.“AJ’s style is tailor-made for mine,” Fury told both Redknapps alongside comedian Tom Davis. “He’s an upright fighter, walking forward with a classic defence.“He’s strong and powerful, but he’s got no footwork. (He’s got) hardly any resilience and he’s a bit gutless when it comes down to getting clipped. “I think I’ll knock him out around two or three rounds.“The first time I connect on him his legs will do a dance. I’ll just jump on him like that fat kid (Andy Ruiz Jr.) did before. Easy, not a bother.”As confident as ever, Fury even picked out the finishing punch, by concluding: “I’ll tell you what shot it’s gonna be as well, should I?“It’s gonna be a left hook to the temple. You’re gonna see him do a Bambi dance all over the ring.”As things stand, AJ is yet to fully follow through with previous promises to face Fury in the next 12 months. A lot of talking has played out in the media.Fury and Joshua have tried to find a solution due to both having mandatories.Kubrat Pulev is lined up for Joshua, whilst Fury has to fight Deontay Wilder for the third time.Up to now, it’s a stalemate, which Fury attributes to Hearn and Joshua.RelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight The summer of 2021 would be the perfect time for Fury vs Joshua to finally take place on UK soil.Tags: Anthony JoshuaBOXINGTyson Furylast_img read more
