Manly Walker Lucas Endowment for the Arts

The Manly Walker Lucas Endowment for the Arts was established in his memory by the Lucas family in 2021 to support the Lee County Community Orchestra Association with an annual grant.


Lucas was an original member of LCCO, serving as the heart of the cello section for more than 30 years. He arranged pieces for the orchestra as well. The endowment is administered by the North Carolina Community Foundation.
