Thank You, Alumni!
In thanking Lee University alumni for their support in 2016, Dr. Jerome Hammond, vice president for University Relations, described their giving as “fuel for the engine.”
“The university has a first-rate faculty, a focused administrative team, and a large motivated student body,” Hammond said. “It is an impressive machine, but none of it would matter without your support. Alumni gifts of all sizes are fuel that run the Lee engine.”
In 2016 the university marked the successful conclusion of the Find Us Faithful campaign, a five-year, $50 million capital drive that included the development and renovation of nine acres on the south end of campus, now the location of the Nursing and Communication buildings.
“These were only dreams until our alumni and friends said 'yes' when we asked for their help,” Hammond explained. “What Lee has become, and whatever it can become, can never be understood without alumni support.”
