McCombs named 2018 winner of F.J. Lee Award 

Lee University named Kristiana McCombs as the recipient of the 2018 F.J. Lee Award. Dr. Debbie Murray presented the award to McCombs during the Honors Chapel on Thursday, April 12. 
“I am humbled to be counted among the hardworking and passionate recipients of this award,” said McCombs. “The Lee faculty and staff have invested so much toward my academic and personal success, and I hope to continue their legacy of excellence.” 
The annual award was established in 1968 in honor of the second president of the university. It is presented to a senior at Lee who has demonstrated high standards of integrity, leadership, service, broad campus involvement, and academic excellence. Each department may nominate one student for the award and a winner is selected by faculty vote. 
“Kristiana is simply one of the finest students we have ever produced at Lee University,” said Dr. Mark Bailey, professor of music. “She is a scholar, student leader, mentor, and consummate musician.” 
McCombs is a Centennial Scholar and is a School of Music Presser Scholar. She is the recipient of the Roberson Leadership and Carolyn Payne Awards. 
She has served as a peer leader for the Office of First Year Programs, a student worker in the Music Performance Studies Office, and the secretary on the School of Music Dean’s student advisory council. 
McCombs won the Lee University Concerto Competition twice and served as the student conductor for the Lee University Chamber Strings, along with being the director’s assistant for the Lee Children’s Chorale. 
During her time at Lee, she has traveled to Japan, taught string instruments to students at Blythe Bower Elementary School, and tutored at the Boys & Girls Clubs. 
McCombs is a double major in cello performance and music education, with a vocal and instrumental licensure. She will graduate summa cum laude this May. 
After graduation, she plans to move to Toronto and hopes to teach music before pursuing graduate school.
