Leah Menezes Lee Art Education Scholarship

Leah Menezes Lee was an artist and teacher with children and adults in schools, universities, museums, dojos, and city streets. She was both a visual artist of murals, sculpture, and painting, and a martial artist of karate, krav maga, and tai chi. Leah was a dedicated educator and her teaching included being an instructor at the UNM Valencia Campus. Her daughter, Tema Milstein, is a professor in UNM’s Department of Geography & Environmental Studies and a UNM Presidential Teaching Fellow.

In memory of Leah, her family wishes to establish a scholarship in the UNM Department of Art Education in the hopes that her legacy will assist future teachers of art.
