A scholarship fund has been created for the children of beloved TV journalist and producer, Lisa Lee, who passed away last year after a battle with brain cancer.
Before her tragic death, Lee held the role of Sr. VP/Creative & Content at the Academy of Country Music. As the Academy’s lead staff producer, she oversaw all video production as well as the design, creation, and editing of ACM logos, digital and printed materials including ACM Tempo magazine, the ACM Awards program book, and both the ACM and ACM Lifting Lives websites.
The scholarship fund was created by industry executives Marion Kraft, Sarah Trahern, Jennie Smythe and Teresa George. In a letter to the community, the executives wrote that both of Lee’s children had their college funds depleted in order to help cover the cost of Lee’s care. Lee’s daughter Grayson would like to follow her footsteps and attend Belmont University in the fall of 2023. Her younger son Jackson also wishes to attend college.
“Because Lisa was so beloved by everyone who knew her, especially here in Nashville, we want to do everything we can to ensure her family has the opportunity to thrive again,” the letter reads.
Those wishing to contribute to Lee’s children’s 529 college funds can write a check payable to Edward Jones (Subject Line: 529 Contribution Lee Family). Edward Jones will provide a tax receipt. Checks will need to be mailed to Shopkeeper Management, Attn.: Marion Kraft, 918 19th Ave. S., Nashville, TN 37212.
Those wishing to help the Lee family pay bills and get back on their feet can write checks payable to Lisa Lee Memorial Fund and mail them to First Arkansas Bank and Trust, Attn.: Lise Lee Memorial Fund, PO Box 827, Jacksonville, AR 72078. Donations can also be made via Zelle at [email protected].
