The Nicole Michelle Lee Memorial Scholarship
Fund was established in January 2008 by her family soon after Nicole was involved in a fatal car accident. This Fund
provides scholarships and educational opportunities for individuals graduating from Col Zadok Magruder High School in Derwood,
Nicole was an exceptional individual who excelled academically,
participated in many extracurricular activities, served her church and community, and had a passion for living life to its
