BlakeLee brought her boundless energy and positive attitude to the NEF and has had a tremendous impact on the organization over the past 11 years. In its infancy, BlakeLee held coffees to get the word out about the NEF and its mission. She was the chair of the first “Ask” event that raised money for the literacy campaign and she ran the “Love of Music” fundraiser to fund the music lab at the Nock. BlakeLee most recently served as the chair of the Outreach Committee, recruited volunteers, and solicited donations.
