Kim and Aleesha LaBreche are excited to announce the Lee LaBreche Memorial Endowed Scholarship at Montana Tech. This scholarship is in memory of Lee LaBreche, who was the Men and Women’s Golf Coach at Montana Tech from 2013-2019. Lee was an avid golfer who loved sharing his knowledge and passion for the game, particularly with young people. Lee was instrumental in growing the Junior Golf Program in Montana and was excited to see the direction this program was going to encourage young people in Montana to pursue golf.

“It is with great pride that we establish this scholarship in Lee’s name to continue his passion for the game and to help a Montana Golfer further their education at Montana Tech,” said Kim and Aleesha LaBreche. The LaBreche Memorial Endowed Scholarship will provide support to graduates of high school in Montana that attend Tech, with a preference for students looking to continue their competitive golf careers with the Orediggers.

“Establishing the LaBreche Memorial Endowed Scholarship is a fantastic way to honor the legacy that Coach Lee left behind at Montana Tech. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have played for Lee and to have built such a great relationship with the “Kahuna.” The LaBreche family is going to make positive impacts on so many lives with this scholarship, just like Lee impacted my life. This is a great way to honor a great man,” said Sean Ryan, Montana Tech’s Golf Coach.

“Lee was a friend to everyone he met, incredibly generous with his time, and made a huge impact on Montana Tech’s golf program. It has been an honor to work with Lee’s family and his many friends to establish this endowment, which will perpetuate Lee’s legacy and help current and future generations of Orediggers pursue their educational goals,” said Michael Barth, Executive Director of the Montana Tech Foundation.

Endowed funds like the LaBreche Scholarship are invested and provide a permanent impact that will grow over time through market appreciation and additional gifts.
