The Robert E. Lee II Memorial Scholarship was established in 2001 to honor the memory of a vital member of the Lawrence County Community. As a local businessman, County Coroner, volunteer, husband, father, and friend, Robert Lee embodied a uniquely open and generous spirit that touched many lives.
Robert’s untiring work in and for the Bedford community is legendary. He donated his time and talents to youth organizations, service clubs, and local committees and boards with boundless positive energy with the belief that the greatest gift you can give another is to make them feel good about themselves. Robert’s voracious appetite for life, his genuine concern for friends and neighbors, his sense of adventure, and his integrity, made him so dearly loved by his family, friends, and community.
