There’s a new face atop the basketball department at MEI.

The school announced on Tuesday the appointment of Mike Lee as the new director of basketball operations for the Eagles.

Lee is a WJ Mouat and UFV grad, as well as a MEI parent volunteer. He said he has a passion to see children develop their character through sport.

“Watching a student grow into a caring member of their community because of involvement in athletics is what I live for,” he stated in a press release. “I’m excited to see MEI continue to build on decades of success in basketball and athletics in general.”

Vijay Manuel, Head of MEI Schools has indicated that Lee joins a group of sports leaders including Peter Hay (director of the hockey academy), Derek Shuel (director of volleyball operations), Rick Thiessen, Reg Wiebe, and Kara Davis (MEI Athletic Directors) as well as countless staff and community coaches who have carried the athletics torch for years at the school.

Manuel believes MEI is at the start of a new day in many areas including basketball and athletics as a whole.

“We are excited to see students performing at a high level in their sport and are even more passionate about harnessing athletics to help build young women and men of character,” he stated.
