English Literature, TESOL
Class of Spring 2019
Hunter White, from Maryville, Tennessee, was originally skeptical about going to a university so close to his hometown, but after visiting Lee and meeting with Dr. Christopher Blake, associate professor of TESOL and linguistics, he knew Lee’s was the program he wanted to join.
Hunter serves as the assistant to the director in Lee’s English Language Center, where he helped teach English to people in the community and works to make the program run efficiently.
“The professors have had the biggest impact on me and helped to steer my future,” said Hunter. “Whether it’s academic or just life advice, they’ve really taken me under their wing, and I didn’t expect to find that in college.”
Now in his senior year, Hunter has remained active on campus throughout his time at Lee. He has presented academic papers at the Lee English and Sigma Tau Delta English honor society symposiums. He is both an honor student and Centennial Scholar, and was honored to be featured his sophomore year in Lee’s alumni magazine.
Hunter plans to attend graduate school after graduating from Lee.
