Business Owner Jason Lee will be the February Moving Mountains Speaker

02/06/2017

Jason Lee, a local business owner and Frederick Community College (FCC) alumnus, will be the featured speaker at the FCC Moving Mountains speaker series on Wednesday, Feb. 15, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The monthly series features inspiring professionals who share their life experiences and encourage teens and young adults to set the bar high in all areas of their lives.

The sessions are free and open to the public and will take place in the JBK Theater, located inside the Visual & Performing Arts Center on campus.

During his talk, Lee plans to discuss the importance of being proactive, finding mentors, and making connections with people who share your passions.

“Growing up, I didn’t have family connections that some people have, so I had to find my own mentors and be self-sufficient, which I think is a great trait for any young person to have,” Lee said. “Even for those folks who have a strong support system, it’s important to maximize that as best you can and find your passions and build relationships that will eventually open doors for you and help you stand out.” 

Lee is owner of Lee Building Maintenance, a local company that provides janitorial services. An active member in the community, Lee is the immediate past president of the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek and an executive committee member for the Rotarian Initiative for Successful Employment which provides opportunities to community members in need.  He also serves as an executive committee member for the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce and is on boards for the County Workforce Services, Interfaith Housing Alliance Business Council, and more.

In addition to Lee, upcoming Moving Mountain speakers include:

• March 21 - Amelia Draper, NBC4-Washington Meteorologist
• April 12 - Mia Russell, financial expert and educator with University of Maryland Extension
• May 17 - Maurice Arenas, studio musician, performer, and TrueFire artist.
