Randy LeMay honored by Lexington Clinic FoundationAs part of the annual National Philanthropists Day luncheon, hosted by the Bluegrass Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the Lexington Clinic Foundation honored Mr. Randy Le May as the organization’s Philanthropist of the Year. The prestigious award was accepted by LeMay’s wife Cindy at the luncheon on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.

LeMay dedicated 24 years of service to Lexington Clinic until his death in 2012, at which time he held the position of Chief Financial Officer. During those years, he served not only as a professional mentor for many, but also on the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross Board as one of its past presidents, on the board of Hospice of the Bluegrass and was an active member of Quest Community Church.

As part of the celebration of his legacy, the Lexington Clinic Foundation has established a new scholarship in his name, which will continue LeMay’s commitment to helping others. Beginning in 2015, this scholarship will be for students pursuing a career in health administration, or a related field, at the Masters level and above, or for students pursuing professional development opportunities related to health administration.
