Dr. David Littrell (Kansas State University) was added to the distinguished list of KASTA Hall of Fame Honorees at the 2018 KASTA Luncheon at the KMEA-ISW in Wichita on February 23, 2018. He was nominated by friend and colleague Dr. Cora Cooper who writes,
“For 31 years, David Littrell has promoted string playing and teaching in Kansas and in the U.S. As national ASTA president, he spearheaded the effort to create ASTA’s annual convention and oversaw the first gathering in 2003. David’s efforts in Kansas with service to KASTA, his founding of the Gold and Silver Orchestras in Manhattan, and his directing of K-State’s String Fling speak to his love of string playing and teaching. This would be a fitting tribute as he retires this year.”
Dr. Littrell’s impact on string education in Kansas will be enjoyed for years to come. Please take a moment to thank him for his many years of exemplary service to our profession!
