Melody Baughman is learning His way

May 1, 2013


Melody Baughman is thoroughly involved in student life and extracurricular activities, a stand-out member in the College’s Oratory Union and a straight-A student — and she’s only a sophomore.

Her major, Liberal Studies, is as versatile as her many interests. And with components in Communication and Mathematics, she’s enjoying the program’s breadth to the fullest.

She hopes to enter the field of sales and public relations, serving as a logistics liaison between manufacturers and buyers, which would utilize her approachable personality with her aptitude for math and problem solving.

Melody is also an exceptional communicator, a trait showcased in her two years in the Florida College Oratory Union.

The Union showcased Melody’s oral versatility as well. She portrayed communication as a science and art, competing in virtually every category: debate, after-dinner speaking, oral interpretation, dramatic duos, extemporaneous speaking and communication analysis.

In addition to her academic and career goals, Melody is pursuing a minor in Music. She has talent vocally and instrumentally, and landed the role of Sister Bertha in the College’s production of The Sound of Music. She also plays piano and violin and is a member of the string orchestra.

Melody was recently selected by her peers as this year’s Spring Queen, an honor bestowed upon the College’s lady of utmost beauty, poise and grace. In the ceremony she was praised for her consistent effort of reaching out to others and showing kindness.

That’s what defines her success — not her many commitments, but how she engages in them and her resolve to put others before herself.

That’s how Melody is learning His way.
