Preschool Carolers Spread Holiday Cheer at UAMS 2018-01-05T09:15:55+00:00

DEC. 11, 2006 | Sporting Santa hats and reindeer antlers, a group of preschool carolers brought a dose of Christmas spirit to administrators, staff and visitors at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).


The group of 3- and 4-year-olds from the Pine Head Start site in North Little Rock visited the offices of UAMS Chancellor I. Dodd Wilson, M.D., and Debra Fiser, M.D., dean of the UAMS College of Medicine. They presented handmade cards to Wilson and Fiser in addition to singing holiday favorites “Jingle Bells,” “Feliz Navidad” and “Silent Night,” among others. The students were accompanied on guitar by their teacher, Tracy St. Clair, and assisted by staff members Christina Sanders and Bettye Lowe and family members.


The preschoolers also entertained visitors and staff in the UAMS Medical Center’s reception desk and surgery waiting room, the College of Medicine administrative office, and the volunteer services office.


The group was accompanied by Mary Kaye McKinney, UAMS Head Start director. As part of the six-year tradition, students from Head Start’s 23 facilities in Pulaski County take turns caroling at UAMS each year.
