Methodist University Speaker Triumphed over Struggles

Accomplished television and music composer LaToya Rene Robertson is the speaker for this year’s Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development Speaker Series, Monday, Oct. 8 at 11 a.m. in Huff Concert Hall on the Methodist University campus.

Robertson, who earned an undergraduate degree in music from Methodist, survived the struggles of being raised in an impoverished and drug-infested neighborhood to become an accredited television and music composer, songwriter, property owner, author, world traveler and doctoral candidate. Her talk is entitled “The Student Leadership Formula.”

Robertson played percussion and bass for the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra, and percussion for the Fayetteville Symphonic Band.
