This special event provides philanthropic support for The Henry Lee ’43 Memorial Scholarship Fund

Henry Lee ’43 was the first Asian American student to attend Friends Seminary. He created this endowment in honor of his 50th reunion at Friends. Upon his death in 1995, his family continued this scholarship fund which has grown into the largest named endowed fund at Friends Seminary; it provides financial assistance to Asian American students.
