11 Jun Faculty Spotlight: Nyadia Thorpe
Posted at 18:38h in Faculty & Staff Spotlight
Meet our Choir Director and Associate Professor of Music, Ms. Nyadia Thorpe!
She is a proud graduate of Booker T. Washington HS for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX, has earned degrees from UTA, SMU, and her principal certification from SFASU.
“I came to Navarro because of my passion for music education and working with young people. Students everywhere deserve the best educational experience possible. So, I had the opportunity to serve here and it’s been amazing.
Working at Navarro feels like a great fit. I have supportive colleagues and administrators – that’s the best combination! You don’t find that everywhere! I’m truly blessed by the experiences I’ve had at NC and the students, staff, faculty & administers are so kind. It makes a wonderful difference in someone’s career to have the type of support I’ve received at Navarro.
Most recently I have been indicted in Who’s Who In America, and last year I was featured in Southwest Now Magazine’s, Ad Hoc Art article. A few years prior I was featured in a Midlothian Now article titled, Inspired by Music. I’ve recently founded the Black Women Composers & Conductors Network to help create a platform for other women like myself in my profession to share our work and to remain connected and motivated to keep doing great things for the communities we serve.”
Thank you, Nyadia, for the impact you are making on our students and community!
