Bromley named 2018 Presser Scholar 
Danae Bromley, a junior music performance major with an emphasis in oboe, was recently named the recipient of Lee University’s 2018-19 Presser Undergraduate Scholar Award. 
The Presser Foundation, established by music publisher Theodore Presser, is dedicated solely to the support of music and music education. With its Undergraduate Scholar Award, the Pennsylvania-based foundation recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding accomplishments in music performance at accredited colleges and universities across the country. 
“Danae combines the fine sensibilities of a talented musician with the instincts of a scholar,” said Dr. Phillip Thomas, chair of the Department of Musicianship Studies and distinguished professor of music. “We are pleased to recognize her accomplishments and the bright future they suggest.” 
Bromley, from Knoxville, has been involved with music since elementary school. She began playing the oboe during her freshman year of high school. Since being at Lee, she has been involved in the orchestra, chamber music groups, and wind ensemble. 
She was a concerto competition winner for the 2016-17 school year and is a current member of the Alpha Chi National Honor Society. Bromley, who will marry this summer, plans to go to graduate school for oboe performance after graduating next year. 
As the 2017-18 Presser Scholar, Bromley will receive a cash stipend for her upcoming senior year.  
Presser Undergraduate Scholar Awards are distributed to a number of accredited institutions throughout America. Past recipients at Lee University include Brittany Martin (2017), Kristiana McCombs (2016), Matthew Kelly (2015), Joey Archer (2014), Erica Tipton (2013), Matthew Wilkinson (2012), Lamprini Lindeman (2011), Christopher Oglesby (2010), Sabbath Ward (2009), Rachael Skidmore (2008), Michael Land (2007), and Brooke Upton (2006).

Lee Hosts Latin American and Iberian Studies Conference By Olivia Webb   Lee University’s Department of Language and Literature recently hosted the seventh annual Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Conference on Latin American and Iberian Studies.   This conference aims to cultivate academic excellence among undergraduate students and to unite students and professors from a wide variety of disciplines. Local high school students were also invited to take part in a poster presentation session, which was organized by assistant professor of Spanish Dr. Carmen Guerrero, her Spanish classes, and high school students from the community.   “Even after seven years of this conference, we continue to see the fruit of teamwork and passion for language, literature, and culture,” said Dr. Alexander Steffanell, associate professor of Spanish. “I’m so happy to share in this experience with such a professional and devoted group of colleagues and students and to see the fruit of the Kingdom among us.”   Presenters included students from Colgate University, J. Frank White Academy, Lee University, Messiah College, Northern Kentucky University, Princeton University, University of Memphis, University of North Alabama, University of Richmond, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, University of the South, and Western Carolina University.   Lee University presenters included Timothy Bideshi, Sarah Clayton, Elyssa Edwards, Chase Filasky, Loren Garcia, Kenzie Holton, Annelie Johnson, Micaela Lucas, Victoria Lentz, and Allie Toombs.   Panel presentations included “Culture, Philosophy, and Societal Issues,” “Linguistics in the World,” and “Institutions and Human Right,” as well as other topics related to the culture of Latin America and Iberia.   The presentation panel moderators were Dr. Jean Eledge, Audra Chaney, Dr. Sara Ortega-Higgs, Dr. Betsy Poole, and Hannah White, all from Lee University, as well as Dr. Scott Infanger of University of North Alabama and Renee Congdon of Colgate University.   “The symposium was an incredibly rich, inspiring experience,” said Eledge, chairperson for Lee’s Department of Language and Literature. “The preparation and organization combined with the enthusiasm, energy, and obvious level of engagement of all who presented or participated in any way made this academic opportunity one that truly furthered understanding and appreciation of other languages and cultures.”   Lee alumnus, Zachary Greene, was the guest speaker at the conference. Greene graduated in 2013 from the Department of Language and Literature and the Department of History, Political Science, and Humanities. In 2017, Greene worked in Peru and Ecuador with indigenous communities. He teaches Spanish at J. Frank White Academy.   “I would definitely come back to Lee University for its next annual undergrad conference on Latin American and Iberian studies,” said Congdon. “It was great to talk among peers about similarities and differences between our research and our areas of study, and I would recommend this conference to others in the field.”   For more information on Lee's Department of Language and Literature or the Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Conference on Latin American and Iberian Studies, call (423) 614–8210.     PHOTOS: (1) Loren Garcia, Spanish major, presents on carnivals throughout Spanish speaking countries. more
