Ugo Ezemma, MostArts Festival Business Major Intern

Ugo Ezemma

The recipient of The Dr. Bruce Conroe ’53 MostArts Festival Business Major Internship at Alfred University, Ugo joins the MostArts Festival in the capacity of Festival Intern.


My name is Ugo Ezemma, and I am honored to be working with Dr. Lisa Lantz and her upcoming MostArts Festival. I am in my last year of receiving my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Alfred University. My goals when graduated are to work in operations management and marketing.

I will be bringing my background working in social media to MostArts. I’ve worked with Instagram and YouTube influencers and my hope is that I can bring that same enthusiasm and energy to MostArts. This opportunity to be part of Team MostArts is nothing short of amazing and I am so thankful to Dr. Lisa Lantz for it.


About Bruce Conroe '53

Bruce Conroe

Bruce Conroe, one of many members of his family to attend Alfred University, graduated Alfred University in 1953 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics. He earned a Master's in Education from Alfred in 1954 and his EdD from SUNY Albany in 1975.

Bruce was employed as a math teacher and guidance counselor before transitioning into higher education at SUNY Potsdam, where he worked as associate dean of students, assistant vice president for academic affairs, and retired as vice provost. Bruce married Barbara Holme Conroe in 1953. Together they raised four children and shared a love of music, travel and the great outdoors. They celebrated 59 years of marriage prior to Barbara’s death in 2013.

Bruce is a talented singer, pianist, and theatrical performer. He has participated in community theater productions and church choirs his entire life, always seeking opportunities to expand his repertoire; in life and in performance. He hopes that this internship will expand students’ experience and opportunities as well as their appreciation for the performing arts.
