What, exactly, is a Legend of Lee's Summit?
A Legend of Lee’s Summit is a person or family who has impacted (or is impacting) the Community of Lee’s Summit’s past, present, or future.
Individuals and/or families are first considered, then vetted, and finally, formally nominated by the History Museum with the consensus of the City of Lee’s Summit.
Once the nomination and vetting are complete and an individual/family is accepted, they will be notified. A formal announcement will be made to the community, and they will be publicly honored.
As a Legend of Lee’s Summit, an individual or family’s impact on the Lee’s Summit community will be honored and celebrated in a unique and permanent way.
The Legends of Lee’s Summit yearly gala will honor a maximum of four individuals/families each year, beginning with an inaugural Gala on May 11, 2023.
