Our colleague and friend, Leslie “Les” K. Lilly unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, January 21, 2017. Les worked with The Neighborhood Longhorns Program as our Volunteer Coordinator since 2015. We also worked with Les prior to his joining our team when he worked in Athletics. He would help us bring student-athletes to our events and to visit our schools.
During his time with The Neighborhood Longhorns Program, he helped recruit volunteers for our tutoring program and for our special events. Les built a great rapport with our Site Coordinators and helped carry out the mission of our program.
He will be truly missed and we appreciate all he did to help the kids in our community. His smile and giving spirit will guide us through each and every day. Thank you, Les, for making us laugh and for helping us serve our schools and the NLP community.
