As one of the five voting members of the Story County Board of Health, all of a sudden, Lee was making decisions that directly impacted Story County including the City of Ames and Iowa State University. “When I was appointed to the Board, I didn’t expect to have such heavy decisions resting on my shoulders,” she said. “It’s been a little intimidating, sometimes stressful, and certainly busy. Her work on the Story County Board of Health is just one of the many reasons why Lee will receive the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award this Homecoming.
