Mrs. Saylor will serve ALC as a Music Instructor and assume the responsibilities of the Voices of Appalachia Choir Director beginning in the fall of 2018.

She received her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education K – 12 from Cumberland College and her Master’s in Secondary Education from Morehead University. Mrs. Saylor went on to teach music in the public school system for thirty-three years.

Mrs. Saylor has taught music classes part-time at The June Buchannan School and Alice Lloyd College for the last seven years.

Mrs. Saylor sees her new classes as an exciting challenge and says, “I feel like it is a real honor to be invited to this position.” Her husband Bob Saylor will also be teaching Introduction to Music Theory. The College is excited to see how Mrs. Saylor will use her skills to contribute to the ALC community.
