The John Lee Memorial Scholarship

 

The John Lee Memorial Scholarship program recognizes student-athletes similar to John that have dedicated their time and hearts to excellence both in the classroom and in their sport.

John always had a plan.  In 9th grade he decided that he would utilize his athletic ability on the basketball court to achieve his dreams of college.  Throughout high school he worked tirelessly both in the classroom and in the gym to ensure his dreams became reality. He caught the eyes of recruiters from several prestigious colleges and universities.  It was John’s dream to use his athletic talents to one day become an investment banker on Wall Street.
