On May 31, at a small ceremony for 20 family members, faculty, and trustees, the David S.K. Lee Family Plaza at Flintridge Prep was dedicated in honor of a historic gift from the David and Katherine Lee. The Lees’ gift will provide enduring support for the school’s leadership and risk- taking programs for seniors. Among the programs that will benefit from the endowment are retreats, peer counseling, student government and the Athletic Council on Leadership.
At the ceremony, Board Chair Kris Leslie and Headmaster Peter Bachmann thanked the Lees for their commitment on behalf of the school. The timing of the ceremony was perfect, as the Class of 2014, which includes the Lees’ daughter, Rachel, had just arrived back from their senior trip and was assembling on the other side of campus to celebrate the school’s 81st Baccalaureate.
