Broadway Education Alliance has established a scholarship fund called Marya’s Gift in the memory of Marya Lenn Yee. Marya was a brilliant legal professional and a passionate patron of the arts. She was the first person to believe in the concept of Camp Broadway as a professional caliber, authentic Broadway inspired musical theatre program that could help children to develop their true character. She donated her time and expertise to the project. Her two sons, Benjamin and Michael Yee, attended Camp Broadway in its formative years. Throughout her life, Marya was also dedicated to supporting artists in pursuit of their craft.
