Lees named 2007 Honorary Family

Pittsburg State University’s 2007 Honorary Family was celebrated Saturday as part of the university’s annual Family Day event.

Daniel and Brenda Lee of Cleveland, Mo., and their children, Clorisa Bridgers, Kaleena Lee, Venessa Lee, and Travis Lee, were recognized as the family of honor this year during the PSU vs. Missouri Western football game. The family was nominated by Venessa, a senior biology major at PSU.

In her nomination, Venessa said her parents deserved the honor because of their active involvement in their hometown. Daniel Lee, a farmer and volunteer board member for the local fire department, “is always available to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.” Her mother, a painter, also provides her time and energy to the community. Both were active in raising money to construct a new track at the local high school, and are involved in the community club which organizes community events. Vanessa says her siblings are also involved in various organizations, athletic teams, and volunteer groups.

Pittsburg State University is pleased to congratulate the Lee family on being named the 2007 Honorary Family.
