Congratulations to my mother, Marian Cox! She was awarded “Member of the Year” by the Florida Federation of Music Clubs (FFMC is a member of the National Federation of Music Clubs). This marvelous organization has been an extreme influence in my professional life today as well as when I was a child. FFMC and NFMC has also been an enormous influence for both of my daughters and for music students throughout our country. Through FFMC, Marian Cox has fostered music education, planned musical events and festivals, held offices, and organized conventions. She has been devoted to this great cause for DECADES and this award is an incredible honor. Congratulations to Marian Cox, my mother. We are so very proud of you!
