Last week lee sent 18 boxes of books to Africa University in Zimbabwe. He idea to give back started during his sabbatical in 2018 he was teaching a class in Zimbabwe and couldn’t find new books.
“The most recent one I could find was published in 1984, which was not acceptable for business classes so I promised to send some books when I get back to my home.”

“He guided me and encouraged me and supported me a lot to accomplish. He also paid the shipping costs by his journal and another journal in Kelce College of Business.”
