HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from the Library of Hattiesburg
The Library of Hattiesburg will offer more than just words on a page when it serves as the multimedia venue for a unique event constructed in tribute to Dana Ragsdale. The event, beginning at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, will include a memorial concert interwoven with readings and a dedication of the artwork donated to the library by Ragsdale.
In her 34-year tenure as professor of music at the University of Southern Mississippi, Ragsdale contributed much to the Hattiesburg community. She passed away in August of 2012; however, she continues to enrich lives through the donation of her art collection and by inspiring her former students and colleagues to perform works in her name.
