MOUNT VERNON— Miss Hildegard “Hiddie” Stanley, a former Brewton-Parker professor and chair of the college’s Division of Music, was recently named to the 2006-2007 edition of the Madison Who’s Who of Executives and Professionals.

            

Stanley’s inclusion in this exclusive annual shows that she has “reached a level of recognizable success in (her) respective field,” according to a release from Madison Who’s Who. The edition is only available to those professionals who are included; however the edition is registered at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

             

Stanley, though retired as music chair after directing BPC’s choir for 35 years, has remained close to the college and serves as Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Consultant for the President for External Relations and adjunct professor.

“I was quite shocked to have this honor after supposedly being retired for five years, though I am more busy now than five years ago,” Stanley said. “To still be recognized at this time in my life is almost unbelievable, yet so meaningful to me. It is part of always going forward rather than digressing because of retirement or age.”

The construction on a $1.1 million music center named in Stanley’s honor should be completed by the fall. The center is an annex to the Miller Music Building on the Mount Vernon campus.
