In February, DMSF recognized and honored Lee Tenzer, one of the DMSF co-founders, past board member, and most dedicated supporters. Lee and his wife Marilyn were joined by fellow co-founders, DMSF’s Executive Director Jose Rodriguez, friends and fellow DMSF supporters to celebrate the incredible impact and longtime philanthropic and volunteer support to DMSF.
Whether it is the dedication to revitalizing the Greencastle Community, the remarkable support of DePauw University, or the work with DMSF’s partner organization, the Evans Scholars Foundation, the Lee and Marilyn are committed to giving back.
Lee has a long resume of personal involvement with the organization. As one of the co-founders and early believers in the mission of educational access, Lee joined the board and served on literally every committee of the organization from finance, to education, to development and served on several gala committees. He has been a longtime volunteer interviewing prospective Murphy Scholars and currently serves as a member of the DMSF Chairman’s Council.
For 30 years, Lee has made a significant commitment in making DMSF what it is today and throughout the past three decades, the generous gift of time and financial support has impacted hundreds and hundreds of scholars, their families and communities.
DMSF is incredibly grateful to Lee and Marilyn for ensuring DMSF continues to support Murphy Scholars for the next 30 years with their legacy support to the organization.
DMSF will continue to ignite potential and enrich lives because of Lee Tenzer.
