Montayne Center Gets New Director

John Aikin, general manager of the 10,000- capacity Crossroads Arena in Corinth, MS, for the past two years, has resigned his post to become director of the 10,800-seat Montayne Center on the campus of Lamar University in
Beaumont, Texas. Aikin said the position would give him the opportunity to work in a bigger market. He assumes his post in mid-April.

Elton John, Garth Brooks and ZZ Top are among the acts that have performed there.
