The Darren E. Lee Scholarship was established to honor the memory of a man of great integrity who unconditionally loved and selflessly gave with a joyful heart. Darren had a passion for education and the apartment industry that was second to none, and was a strong supporter of AAGO as a Volunteer Instructor and Board Member. He was committed to ensuring that those with the desire to receive a quality education would be given the opportunity, and took great pride in developing the careers of so many in the industry. While Darren is missed, his spirit will continuously grow through the recipients of the scholarship bearing his name.
The Darren E. Lee Scholarship was established in 2007, and has enabled almost 125 individuals to advance or pursue a career in apartment management!
"The Darren E. Lee Scholarship and educational opportunities allowed me to learn valuable insights and skills that I was able to apply in my day-to-day activities as a property manager. I made lasting connections with other industry professionals, relationships that I still have today! Industry peers, mentors, and leaders have provided me with impactful resources, advice, and became lasting friends. I connected with AAGO and have been a volunteer, teacher, and supporter for AAGO ever since."
