Dear FamiLEE

Dear FamiLee,

This past Thursday night, two of our students (Ajoi, c/o '22 and Israel, current sophomore) almost lost their mom, and she remains in critical condition. Please consider supporting this family as only the FamiLee can by sending thoughts or prayers and by donating to the GoFundMe created by the family to cover the unexpected expenses of hospitalization.

Thank you!
