Messick Music

A special note of thanks to the late Jean Thweatt Hand (Messick '69), whose willingness to share her digital transfers of Mr. Swayzee's old LP recordings originally made this portion of the website possible. That's Jean on the far right of the saxophone section!

And another special thanks to David Ryan (also a '69 Panther), who went on to a distinguished career as a band director in West Tennessee.

Thanks to David Ryan for these contributions!
