Lila Lee McRight, a 1946 UM graduate, Miss Ole Miss, Hall of Fame inductee and cheerleader, has been honored by her family through an endowment in her name to support military and veterans programs on the Oxford campus. The longtime Ole Miss supporter’s son and daughter-in-law, Johnny and Renee McRight of Greenville, Miss., have established the Lila Lee McRight Endowment for Veterans’ Success to pay tribute to her contributions to UM and provide assistance to veteran and military students. A UM student during World War II, Lila McRight has long held a passion for veterans, and has spoken to students about the WWII experience on the Oxford campus.
