At the annual showcase Parade of Favorites, various campus clubs and organizations select representatives to compete on the club's behalf. This year's theme was "One," highlighting the idea of being "One Club, One Campus, One Community." Mallory Smolen, a graduate student pursuing her master's in higher education administration at Lee, directed the event.
"I am extremely proud of the show that these contestants and escorts put on," Smolen said. "This experience created deeper relationships, challenged everyone to do something out of their comfort zone, and gave us all a way to serve our community in beautiful ways. We are thankful for the many clubs, Lee community, and family members who showed their support. This will be an experience I remember forever!"
