May ‘Out of the Blue’ checks in with ‘Jeopardy!’ grad student, student journalist’s stories, using data to teach new ways to farm

The May 2022 edition of Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is checking in on plenty of campus news, including a School of Music graduate student who’s up for a challenge, a journalism student’s learning curve and the work of the new Middle Tennessee Digital Agricultural Center.

Join us this month to hear from:

Christine Whelchel, a graduate student in the School of Music in the College of Liberal Arts, who discusses her adventures as both a four-time “Jeopardy!” champion and a cancer survivor and why she encourages others to chase their dreams.

Kailee Shores, a sophomore School of Journalism and Strategic Media major in the College of Media and Entertainment, who talks about her recent work for “Middle Tennessee News,” including a feature on MTSU’s animation program and a film created by professor Rodrigo Gomez and his students.

• Dr. Song Cui, a professor in the School of Agriculture in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences and director of the new Middle Tennessee Digital Agricultural Center, who’s combining data analytics and drones with agricultural knowledge to improve production and preserve the land as well as educate students, agricultural pros and other educators.
