For the second time in less than a month, a dean at Kansas City Kansas Community College has stepped into the musical spotlight.
On Memorial Day, Dean of Humanities and Fine Arts Dr. Cherilee Walker sang "God Bless America" and the "Star Spangled Banner" on national TV at Chicago's historic Wrigley Field before a Chicago Cubs baseball game.
On Friday night, Dean of Business and Continuing Education Dr. Marvin Hunt brought his "House Jumpers" band to the KCKCC Performing Arts Center for a rousing jump blues concert that drew a standing ovation. Dr. Hunt was joined in the performance by his wife, vocalist Cathy Hunt; drummer Paul Matthews, guitarist Tommy Wagner and Jason Jones on the Doghouse bass.
Nationally known recording artist, folk singer and songwriter Danny Cox opened the concert. A fund-raiser for scholarships at KCKCC, the Fun Arts concert also included a pre-concert picnic sponsored by the Performing Arts Center directed by Bill Yeazel.
