Music Education – Vocal Emphasis
Lauren Mills is a sophomore music education major from Delmar, Maryland. She was 11 years old when she first stepped onto Lee University’s campus, accompanying her sister’s college visit. Lauren later came to music camp at Lee and made connections with faculty in the School of Music, where she now works in the dean’s office.
Soprano section leader in the vocal ensemble Ladies of Lee, Lauren traveled with Ladies to Costa Rica in May, singing and doing missions throughout the country. She is also a leader in Young Life, ministering to local high school students.
After graduating, Lauren plans to teach music at the elementary level. She is also considering pursuing a master’s degree in educational leadership or arts administration in order to work with music education on a larger scale.
She has been deeply impacted by the Ladies of Lee community, calling the experience “life-giving” and recalling the mentorship of recently graduated members who invested in her.
“There have been so many unexpected friendships that have changed my life,” said Lauren.
