Music Education Students Earn Elected Posts in the Pennsylvania Collegiate Music Educators Association

Two music education students were elected to posts in the Pennsylvania Collegiate Music Educators Association (PCMEA) at the Pennsylvania Music Educators Annual (PMEA) In-service Conference, which was recently held in Erie, Pa. Harlow Alexander, sophomore, Dupont, Pa., was elected state president, and Taylor Morgan, freshman, Jermyn, Pa., was elected Region IV coordinator.

PCMEA consists of a select group of students, representing each district in Pennsylvania. Each year, PCMEA members elect a president-elect, regional coordinators, and a technology coordinator. The president nominates a secretary. This executive board meets periodically throughout the year and represents all pre-music educators throughout Pennsylvania.

In her role as president of PCMEA, Ms. Alexander will preside over PCMEA meetings, and she will be responsible for all correspondence and business matters. Additionally, she will supervise the coordination of collegiate-oriented sessions at the PMEA In-Service Conference, submit the PCMEA article to the PMEA news editor, and serve as an ex-officio member of the PMEA Executive Council when invited by the PMEA.

As regional coordinator, Ms. Morgan will serve on the PCMEA Executive Board, she will be responsible for the organization and supervision of regional workshops, and she will serve as a communication link between the PCMEA Executive Board and the local chapters in her region.
