(LEBANON, Ill., April 21, 2016) — McKendree University’s third annual Academic Excellence Celebration will showcase its students’ scholarly and creative work on April 28.

Classes will not be held, so that students, faculty, staff members and guests may attend concurrent sessions featuring capstone projects, research poster presentations at Holman Library, an art exhibit at the McKendree Gallery of Art in downtown Lebanon, or music, dance and theatre performances. The Academic Excellence Celebration gives students an opportunity to present, perform and exhibit academic projects that they have developed throughout the year.
