ANITA PALMER IS HONORED WITH THE MARY KARR AWARD
The MMS Muse Machine was recognized again recently at the annual summer workshop. Advsiors E. J. Brown and Robin Blathers were thrilled that advisor Anita Palmer was finally acknowledged for all her tirerless work over the years. The Mary Karr award is given once a year to the secondary Muse advisor that has selflessly given of her time and support to the Muse Machine programs without fanfare or recognition. Anita has worked countless hours with students and parents since Muse started at the middle school decades ago. As an advisor, she is one of the students contacts for out of school ticket sales, free workshops for students, audition information for the summer and winter Muse Machine musicals, in-school performances, and social outing to visit Dayton's arts partners. She also works with community events of which the Musers participate. She is the heart of the club.
Muse Machine has grown to over 67,000 students and 600 advisors in nearly 100 rural, suburban, and urban schools in nine Dayton-area counties. It is because of Anita that the Middle School Muse Machine Club has remained such a powerful arts education delivery system. The mission of the Muse Machine is to help change the lives of children through the appreciation of the arts (dance, theatre, visual arts, and vocal and instrumental music). Anita has positively impacted many students with her dedication and love of the arts.
CAMPUS QUEST RECEIVES A $500,000 PLEDGE FROM A MEMBER OF THE MIAMISBURG HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1951
Eudon Holland had a very unique experience while at Miamisburg High School, supporting himself the last three and a half years. During his freshman year, his single mother returned to Tennessee with Eudon and his brother when her anticipated employment here did not materialize. After a short time, Eudon returned to Miamisburg alone. Emancipated, he worked his way through school washing and waxing cars, working at the school as a janitor, and at the A&P store.
While at MHS, he played football, was a class officer, and was homecoming king. He was basically adopted by his classmates, teammates, coaches, teachers, and the town. His senior year, he blocked an extra point against Fairmont assuring an undefeated season and the Miami Valley League championship.
After graduating, he spent two years at Heidelberg College playing football for Hall of Fame coach Paul Hoernemann, before an injury cut his career short. After a stint in the Army, he finished his degree at Wayne State University in Detroit.
Eudon worked for the IRS and taught classes at Schoolcraft and Walsh Colleges. He coached football for thirteen years in Livonia and Northville, Michigan, at both the little league and high school levels with a record of 68-18-7 as head coach, including an undefeated streak of 29 games. He also was elected as Treasurer of Northville Township. He was a volunteer fundraiser for the Salvation Army and Schoolcraft College, and was instrumental in obtaining substantial donations for those organizations.
Eudon is a practicing CPA and Certified Financial Planner in Northville, MI. He is a published author who just compiled a second book and is working on other literary projects. Proceeds from his first book, titled Boiled Peanuts and Buckeyes, have been given to the Viking Bowl, Historical Society, and MHS Alumni Association.
