Yavapai College and the Yavapai College Foundation are pleased to announce the naming of the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center to the Jim and Linda Lee Performing Arts Center.

The naming was approved by the College’s District Governing Board in February and is an acknowledgment of the creation of the Jim and Linda Lee Endowment for the Performing Arts at Yavapai College.

The endowment will provide sustainable support for the performing arts at Yavapai College and continue to bring top-of-the-line talent to our community through Northern Arizona’s premier arts entertainment venue.

“On behalf of Yavapai College and the Yavapai College District Governing Board, I’d like to thank Jim and Linda for their tremendous generosity, which will undoubtedly impact the performing arts and our communities,” said Dr. Lisa Rhine, President of Yavapai College.

For more than 40 years, Jim and Linda Lee have made their presence in the greater Prescott area known through visionary leadership and generous philanthropic support of dozens of community organizations, particularly in the performing arts and sciences. Beyond that, their efforts in creating and developing upscale residential and commercial developments have added to the economic growth and prosperity of the area.

The Lee’s names will be installed with prominent signage on the exterior of the Performing Arts Center. Additionally, a dedication ceremony and reception to publicly honor the Lees and recognize the singular impact of this gift on Yavapai College will be held following the signage installation later this year.

“We appreciate the very generous gift from Jim and Linda, which will provide support and directly impact the performing arts center as well as our students that participate in our many performing arts programs,” said Marnie Uhl, President of the Yavapai College Foundation Board.

The Jim and Linda Lee Performing Arts Center enriches the quality of life in Yavapai County by providing diverse experiences that inspire, educate, and entertain, instills a life-long appreciation of performing arts and film, and offers a unique place to host educational and informational events for Yavapai College, surrounding communities, and visitors.

The 1,064-seat theater is Northern Arizona’s premier entertainment venue featuring the best in live performances, movies, and satellite broadcasts.
