Worship rally, scholarship giveaway wrap up Lee Day 2017
Lee Day weekend finished with a worship rally held in the Conn Center at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. The event began with the chapel band and Voices of Lee leading the congregation in worship, followed by a scholarship giveaway.
Dr. Paul Conn also offered a message based around the “Are You Lost?” theme, which addressed potential feelings that prospective students could be experiencing before college.
Kadison Beaver, a member of Voices of Lee, shared that he had an especially powerful moment while leading worship with his acapella choir.
“This was the first time that we premiered our arrangement of ‘No Longer Slaves’ that I actually had the opportunity to arrange,” Beaver said.
Beaver explained that the arrangement was inspired during Christmas break as something that he felt God had placed on his heart.
Voices of Lee member Naja Wilson also shared how she was continuously brought to tears through the event.
“It seemed like from the beginning to the end God’s spirit was there,” Wilson said.
Prospective student Hope Douglas expressed her interest in the music programs at Lee. When asked what her favorite part of the rally was, she replied with “the worship band.”
The event concluded with a scholarship giveaway that awarded a few lucky prospective transfer students and incoming freshmen with financial gifts to apply towards their education at Lee.
One fortunate winner, Rachel Stock, received a $5,000 scholarship. Stock explained how the scholarship could not be more timely since her family is going through a transitional time due to her mother recently leaving her job.
“It doesn’t feel real, it’s just a huge blessing,” Stock said.
