Our Community

We continue to strive for excellence as a Ford President's Award winner. The Ford President's Award is awarded to dealers who provide the highest level of customer service, customer satisfaction, and overall customer experience every day.

 

John Lee points to impacting the local area in a positive way as the most rewarding aspect of his career. When the Lee Motor Group was moving the dealership location to another part of town, there was over ten acres, multiple buildings and automotive equipment that was adjacent to Wilson Community College. John Lee had a vision for this space to be utilized for the community and gifted the property to the College, which became the Lee Technology Center. With this gift, Wilson Community College was able to expand their Automotive Program and house their Small Business Center. A new building for HVAC, Building Construction Technology and Electrical Technology is currently in progress. The Lee Technology Center will continue to serve the community in a number of important ways. Check out this recent article about the progress of the new building.

A few other important community efforts that John holds close to his heart are Barton College and Baptist Children's Homes of NC.


John Lee attended and graduated from Barton College in his early 20s, during which time he was running the Ford dealership after his father passed away. Barton College provides the community with employment and education. John has served as a trustee for 32 year and as Chair from the years of 2016-2021, as he hopes to give back to an organization he appreciates immensely.

 

Baptist Children's Homes of NC has been helping children for over 130 years, providing foster care, adoption services, outreach to families in crisis, services for the disabled and so much more. John Lee is currently serving his second tenure as Chair of Trustees of BCH.
