In appreciation of a generous gift from the Lee family, GW's School of Engineering and Applied Science renamed its dean's office the "Simon and Anna Lee Dean's Suite" in April 2005. "The Lee family story is one of hard work, personal sacrifice, and intellectual curiosity," said GW President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg at the suite's dedication ceremony. "As we move forward, from strength to strength, both the University and the Lee family, may we always succeed and walk together, shoulder to shoulder."
"Many great people have graduated from this University and made a great impact on the world," Simon Lee said at the dedication. "I hope that I, and my family, can continue that tradition."
Education has always been considered vital in the Lee household. From a very young age Simon Lee impressed upon his children that a bachelor's degree is not enough; they should also obtain a master's degree. "As my father has said, 'No one is ever too old to learn and no one is ever too young to teach,'" remarked Julie Lee at the dedication of the Simon and Anna Lee Dean's Suite.
The Korean Broadcasting System recently recognized Simon Lee with the Overseas Korean Award, the most prestigious honor the Korean government can bestow upon a Korean-born individual. The Overseas Korean Award is given annually to the most prominent overseas Koreans to recognize their life-long contributions to the Korean national image and pride. This year, Lee was one of only five recipients worldwide. Lee also was the recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in 2003, and was named the U.S. Small Business Administration's Small Business Person of the Year in 1998.
