Little Texas Guitarist Earns Master’s Degree

Little Texas guitarist Dwayne O’Brien graduated with a master’s degree in communication of science, engineering and technology from Vanderbilt University in Nashville on Friday (May 13). The 41-year-old musician was the first student to enroll in the interdisciplinary program and the first to graduate. “I want to help put the humanity back into science and scientists,” said O’Brien, who earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry at East Central University in Ada, Okla., before joining Little Texas. “I will be looking for ways to dovetail my interests and use music to promote science education.”
