Lee Burgett was an ASHRAE Presidential Member, Fellow, and honored with both the Distinguished and Exceptional Service Awards. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May 2014 and passed away on December 21, 2014. During his 2005-2006 tenure as ASHRAE President, Lee focused on his theme of “Advancing ASHRAE Technology and Our Future” with emphasis on sustainability, energy conservation, and society growth. Lee was committed to growing the society and its membership.
As a chapter, we have decided to honor Lee’s commitment to the society by creating a scholarship in his honor. The scholarship will be awarded to an engineering student within our ASHRAE region.
