Larry Lees ‘97 Memorial Sound Fund

The Larry Lees ’97 Memorial Sound Fund was established in memory of Larry who sadly passed away in March 2022. While a student at University Liggett School, Larry was an active and talented member of the theater and performing arts community and was one of the first students to advocate for the use of wireless microphones for performances.

Thanks to his leadership and encouragement, the school purchased its first set of five wireless mics for use on stage in the late ‘90s. The Larry Lees Sound Fund will provide ongoing support and upgrades to the theater sound system and the technology needs in the ULS auditorium.

Our fundraising goal for this initiative is $100,000 and multi-year gifts are welcomed.
