Celebrate Miss Lee
Lee Nolting was the first dance faculty member hired at COCA in 1986. She has been a teacher, mentor, friend and even “mother” to generations of COCA students, who all credit her with nurturing in them a lifelong love of the arts. A tribute gift is a great way to honor Miss Lee’s years of service to COCA and the community. We will notify Miss Lee of your thoughtful donation, but will not reveal the amount. Every gift is tax-deductible, and you will receive an acknowledgment of your donation.
