Michael Lee

Michael Lee of Bellefontaine, a senior music major at Heidelberg University, recently performed a recital as part of the capstone requirement for graduation.

To fulfill the requirement, music students at Heidelberg prepare a public performance of literature written for their chosen instrumental or vocal area. Mr. Lee performed his trumpet recital during the spring semester.

Kavan E. Reames

Artwork created by Kavan E. Reames, an advertising design student from Zanesfield, was featured in Ohio Northern University’s recent senior portfolio display of bachelor of arts and bachelor of fine arts seniors at the Elzay Gallery of Art on campus.

The capstone project is designed to encourage students to define the complex intersection between personal voice, conceptual understanding, the ability to conduct and use research, and to effectively use their liberal arts education in a process of creating a compelling, professional presentation.

 Emma Lusby

Bellefontaine resident Emma Lusby was recognized as an outstanding student at the Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute at the annual student recognition banquet during April.

A Benjamin Logan High School graduate, she also graduated from ATI in August with associate of applied science degrees in livestock production and management. She earned director’s list honors during each of her academic terms at ATI.

Ms. Lusby served as a peer tutor on campus and was active with the Hoof-n-Hide Club. She completed an internship at KingswayAngus in Tiffin, where she was responsible for day-to-day care of the herd and preparing animals for the Ohio State Fair.

Emily Jones

Emily Jones of Bellefontaine was among about 60 students honored April 26 at Heidelberg University’s annual Student Awards Celebration.

Ms. Jones, a senior majoring in political science and international studies, received the John C. Shinn Memorial Award and second place in the Martha and Ernest Hammel Research Award.

In addition, she recently participated in the Model UN of the Far West Conference in San Francisco as part of Heidelberg University’s delegation. She served as the co-undersecretary-general of the conference.

Based around this year’s theme of “The Struggle to Exist: Sustainability and Human Rights,” the simulation is designed to broaden students’ understanding of the principles and means by which international relations are achieved and maintained. The program helps students develop a greater understanding of the nations of the world, the relations between them, their policies, and the nature of their work in the United Nations.
