Volunteer Spotlight - Leona Lee

Leona Lee

We are thrilled to have Leona as our Volunteer Spotlight this month! Leona teaches an art class to our Guests every week

Leona came to LPCS years ago as a volunteer with her Art Class to work with Guests and Graduates on a project that would benefit LPCS for years to come. If you ever visit the LPCS dining room, you have probably noticed the beautiful mural along the wall. This was made by Leona with several other students and the Guests of LPCS. The paint is magnetic so our Guests can leave notes!

Every since then, Leona has been leading her own art class at LPCS every week! She generously provides the supplies and comes every time with new and creative ideas. Our Guests love the opportunity to work with their hands and to make something that they are proud of.

Currently, Leona is working with some artists on creating projects that will be on display and on auction at our upcoming fundraiser, Taste of Fall. If you are interested in seeing some of these works and even have a chance to own your own, be sure to check out our event on October 18th.

Why do I volunteer at LPCS? It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. It is a privilege to teach such wonderful people, to see their growth and blossoming at LPCS. In the coming year, I am eager to explore how photography can be mixed with other artistic media, in ways the guests can use to express themselves visually.
