Atkins-Ellis and Bowdle-O'Bannon Crowned 2014 Dorm Wars Champion

On Monday, Oct. 13, Lee students came from all corners of campus to compete in Dorm Wars 2014. With over 1500 staff, faculty, students, and community friends filling Walker Arena, the event was a success, raising $2000 total for local service organizations. From the male dorms, Bowdle-O’Bannon took first place, Medlin came in second, and New Hughes was third. From the female dorms, Atkins-Ellis won first place, Storms-Brinsfield took second, and Sharp-Davis came in third. As in previous years, each winning dorm received a cash prize to be donated to an organization of their choosing. Bowdle-O’Bannon competed in support of Impact Cleveland, an initiative of Bradley County United Way that works to “see disadvantaged communities of Cleveland be transformed through economic, physical, social, and spiritual revitalization.” Atkins-Ellis competed in support of the New Hope Pregnancy Center in Cleveland, a faith-based organization that offers help, hope and accurate information to those facing unplanned pregnancy. Medlin supported the Boys and Girls Club and New Hughes supported Haven Place. Storms-Brinsfield supported Wellington Place and Sharp-Davis supported the H.O.P.E. Children’s Advocacy Center.
