Nicole Paul and Jay Wilkinson were named semifinalists in the senior and junior categories, respectively. They are both students of Dr. Thomas King, APSU professor of music.

“We had 12 students that competed at the meeting,” King said. “There were about 360 singers from schools in Kentucky and Tennessee. I'm not surprised they did so well. They're all very confident. It (the meeting) is a very nice way to showcase all of them.”
