The event is supported by a gift from Dr. Lee, who died in 2016. Dr. Lee retired in 2011 after 36 years as a member of the School of Medicine faculty. She later served as an advisor for the then-Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She was a strong advocate for WSU graduate students, offering pre- and post-doctoral travel awards to help offset the cost of national and international conferences.
