DearduffIsbellLast week Belmont Honors Program students Tom Dearduff (Christian Leadership) and Danielle Isbell (English and Religion and the Arts) presented their essays at the 33rd annual Thomas H. Olbricht Christian Scholars Conference at Lipscomb University.  The mission of the conference is “to create and nurture an intellectual and Christian community that joins individuals and institutions to stimulate networks of scholarly dialogue.”  More than 325 participants from 98 different universities engaged in paper, panel or performance sessions framed by plenary speakers Charles Mathewes, David Miller and John Dean. Dearduff and Isbell were in a session with first-year Honors students from Messiah College, Abilene Christian and Lipscomb Universities who addressed the issue, “What We Expect from Christian Higher Education.”  They were sponsored by Jonathan Thorndike (Honors Program) and Todd Lake (Vice President for Spiritual Development).
