Lee was a charter member of Alpha Chapter, Alpha Delta Kappa. ADK is an International Teaching Organization and Alpha Chapter was the first chapter in Oregon (1953). Lee stayed an active member for many, many years (65) and always encouraged new members to be the best teachers they could be. She had a great sense of humor, and was very kind and supportive. She was a well liked principal and was very active in and around Portland. Lee will be missed!
