Lucas Lemley was honored as the 2020 Distinguished Alumnus for Lee University’s Helen DeVos College of Education.
“Lucas Lemley took his training at Lee and has become an extraordinary teacher and administrator in Bangkok for the past decade,” said Dr. Bill Estes, dean of Lee’s Helen DeVos College of Education. “His work and commitment at the International Community School have made all of us proud to call him not only an alum, but a colleague.”
Mr. Lemley is currently working as a high school principal of International Community School in Bangkok. He started teaching social studies at ICS in 2009 and will be promoted to the position of headmaster in 2021.
“We originally came to Bangkok because we felt that God was calling us to teach internationally,” said Mr. Lemley. “We heard about ICS from another Lee grad, and we immediately fell in love with the school and felt that God opened all of the doors to bring us here.”
Mr. Lemley grew up in Calhoun, Tn. He and his wife, Jennifer Justice Lemley, have been married since 2001 and have three children, Eleanor, Noah, and Piper.
Mr. Lemley received his Master of Arts in Teaching and Bachelor of Arts in history from Lee University and a Master of Science in educational administration from the University of Scranton.
The announcement of this award took place during Lee’s virtual Homecoming celebration.
