  • Some very sad news

    Lee Academy Community,
    Many of our community may already know, but it is with a heavy heart  that we share news of the passing of our former Trustee and RSU 30 Board Member, Theresa Knowles. Theresa was not only a Lee Academy Trustee, but she was also a strong, active, and very positive member of our community. Theresa was critical in organizing and procuring vaccines and setting up multiple vaccination clinics with Lee Academy to ensure that we had as many shots in arms as possible. Her passing will be deeply felt and you can read her obituary here. 
    Thank you all for your support, our thoughts are with the Knowles family and our community in this difficult time. You are all invited to attend Theresa's celebration of life which will be Saturday, September 11th at 5:30pm. Directions, and ways one can take action in memory of Theresa can be found in the obituary.
