Lauralee moved to Tacoma (from The Dalles Oregon) in 1971 as a PLU college freshman and never left. She has served in several roles and is currently a Senior Gift Officer raising financial support for PLU in the form of current and deferred gifts, in alignment with PLU’s mission, from alumni, parents and friends . While she loves working with people to support whatever they choose to support at PLU, her favorite thing is to work closely with the Athletics and Recreation Department. As an avid LUTE fan, you can usually find Lauralee in attendance at most all athletic contests both home and away–dressed in her favorite colors “black and gold” and rooting for the LUTES. Lots of Lutes coach in our local high schools and it's fun to support them and to encourage their athletes to consider PLU as their college home! I've always loved the mission of TAC and look forward to more actively promote and support their work.
