His advocacy has earned him the “Representative of the Year” award from the Alabama ID (Intellectual Disabilites) 310 Association.

So we give you this to say thanks for all that you do and to show our appreciation,” Alabama ID 310 Association President Arvy Dupuy III said as he presented Lee the inaugural service award at WRC Monday morning.
