Message from Dr. Vincent
Dear DDCE Community,
I am saddened to announce the passing of a member of the DDCE and UT Austin family–Mr. Les Lilly. Les died unexpectedly on Saturday from an apparent heart attack.
Les joined DDCE as volunteer coordinator in the Neighborhood Longhorns Program in Sept. 2015. Prior to that he was a member of the Texas Athletics Academics team. NLP students and staff will greatly miss Les’s presence and leadership.
Les is the husband of UT Austin Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Soncia Reagins-Lilly. Please keep Dr. Lilly and the Lilly family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Dr. Gregory J. Vincent
Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement
W.K. Kellogg Professor in Community College Leadership
Professor of Law
