Faculty Spotlight: Jennifer Davenport

Faculty Spotlight: Jennifer Davenport

 

Each week, MPCS highlights a member of the faculty and staff so that our community can further deepen our relationships.

Title: Orchestra Director

Education: Bachelor of Music Performance and Music Education, Reinhardt University; Master of Music Education, VanderCook College of Music

Number of Years in Profession: 10

Fun Fact: I love to spend time outside hiking, trail running, or gardening, and when I'm inside, I greatly enjoy novels, movies, and strategy board games. My husband and I are also very involved with our church group, where I get to help out on the worship team playing cello each week.

What Makes You Excited About Working at MPCS: One of the unique things about my job here that I love is that I get to see many of the same students year after year as they progress through orchestra. It is so wonderful to get to watch them grow each year, not just as musicians, but as young men and women striving after excellence and seeking after God.
