JOHNS CREEK, GA (May 10, 2017) –
The school week following this news, Mr. McKenzie took the opportunity to tell his students of Lee’s legacy and explained updates and impacts of the combat happening in Iraq.
In an effort to remember and honor 1st Lt. Weston Lee, Mr. McKenzie asked students to bring in items for soldier care packages to send to Iraq. The response was overwhelming resulting in a total of 560 lbs. of goods.
Carter McKenzie expressed his sentiment about his friend Weston Lee and the collection for the soldier care packages.
“This project stemmed from the tragic and unexpected death of my close friend and fraternity brother Weston Lee. I wanted to help make something positive out of the devastating news. I have another fraternity brother (2nd Lt. Kristopher Leong) currently serving in Afghanistan and the school has really come together to collect items to send to his platoon. The support and willingness to give of the students, faculty, and parents has been absolutely incredible. I am beyond thankful and proud of the support from William & Reed Academy,” McKenzie said.
