Ayden and Betty Lee Scholarship Endowment

Honored as distinguished citizens at the 2016 Evening for Education, both Ayden and Betty Lee have demonstrated their unwavering support of Johnston Community College and its students. The Ayden and Betty Lee Scholarship Endowment was created as a collaborative effort between JCC Foundation and Four Oaks Bank to commemorate Ayden and Betty’s achievement and service to our community.

Ayden and Betty Lee are longtime Johnston County residents.

Ayden began his first term as a Foundation Board Director in 2001 with his last term ending in 2010. During this time, JCC Foundation saw tremendous growth – including the addition of many scholarship endowments, two of which were personally established by Ayden and Betty.

Betty retired from service with Progress Energy, and Ayden, after 35 years as president and chief executive officer of Four Oaks Bank & Trust Company recently stepped down, but continues to serve as chairman of the bank’s board.
The Lees have one son, Jason, a daughter-in-law, Jenny, and two grandchildren – J.T. and Price.
