WALESKA -- A Cumming resident was among the five faculty members honored by Reinhardt University administrators during the final faculty senate meeting of the academic year.

Matthew Anderson, a music instructor, received a faculty research and scholarship award for his contributions to the artistic community. He has taught at Reinhardt for almost two years.

In a statement released by the college, Anderson said it is always nice to be “recognized 'at home' for contributions to the community at-large.”

“I am so grateful to be at Reinhardt,” he said. “The support I get from the [dean of the School of Performing Arts], my colleagues, the students and the administration in general is a blessing that I try never to waste. 

“I have had a busy year of recording a guitar duo CD in England, teaching at a festival in Italy, and touring in both China and California. This award is a wonderful way to bring the academic year to a close.”

Based in the Cherokee County town of Waleska, Reinhardt is a private comprehensive university affiliated with the United Methodist Church that offers 41 graduate and undergraduate programs, ranging from business and education to music and theater.
