President's Circle

The President’s Circle was established to recognize generous alumni and friends who invest in their passion for, and commitment to, the success of Lees-McRae College. The future of Lees-McRae lies in the belief that this vibrant academic community is worthy of significant personal investment.

For more than a century, Lees-McRae has been successful because of the generosity of extraordinary people.
