 "Each year my spirit is renewed knowing that Generation for Creation exists, giving children a place to encourage, develop, create and express their talents. Sometimes we all need to remember our dreams as a child and aspire to be everything we want to be."  Lynnette Cole, first Miss USA from Tennessee


 A native of Columbia, Tenn., Cole described Generation for Creation as  “one of Murfreesboro’s hidden secrets … (and) a great program for  children and parents to get involved in.” 

 

MTSU alumni, Alli Scott, majored in vocal performance and speech and  theatre, said her past GFC participation was a much-welcomed experience that benefited her self-confidence and helped her develop artistically.
“It’s  a great opportunity for young people to show off their talents,” she  said. “(And) being in the (annual GFC) talent show was just another way  to overcome my fear of performing and to show (the audience) what I had  been working on and what I wanted to be.”
The work Spencer accomplishes via GFC is even more important for today’s young people,  Scott noted, because of the ever-increasing funding cuts that  arts-related curricula have received within public school systems both  locally and nationwide.
“The arts are slowly drifting away from  school programs,” Scott said, “and I think (GFC) emphasizes how  important (the arts) are to the kids.”
