Kevin Lee, who, among many things, is an Ocean Art Underwater Photo contest winner and UWPG contributor, was recently honored at Chapman University in Orange, CA.  A collection of six of his nudibranch underwater photos from around the world are on permanent display at the Onnolee Elliott Ph. D. Library of Science and Technology.  His work within the Leatherby Libraries enjoys the company of amazing works including a series of seven signed lithographs by artist Norman Rockwell.

The dedication included presentations by Sue Kint (Chapman Board of Governors), Jim Doti (President of Chapman University), Charlene Balwin (Dean of The Leatherby Libraries), and Congressman Ed Royce.

Over one-hundred friends, fans, and supporters were in attendance at the event, and I am proud to say that I was one of them.  Congratulations, Kevin!
