Jefferson City connection puts guitars in hands of Joplin kids

August 9th, 2011 in News

A college student, a music store and a pastor have all been recruited by a traveling singer/songwriter to help heal the children of Joplin through the power of music.

Jefferson Citian Cortney Stohs is a student at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, studying to become a music minister. When musician Josh Hart was given guitars to distribute to the children of Joplin, he contacted Stohs to see if he would be interested in not only distributing the guitars and providing lessons to Joplin's youth, but also mentoring them and helping them cope with the losses they suffered after the tornado more than two months ago.
