Leet Endowment

A Princeton native and her husband are establishing an endowment at the university in Maryville.

Dick and Phyllis Leet met back in the '40's at a chemistry lab at Northwest Missouri State. Dick went on to build a successful career at Amoco Oil Corporation, retiring in 1991. Now, Northwest president Dr. John Jasinski says the Leets are giving a gift of more than a hundred thousand dollars to the university to help upgrade the Horace Mann Lab School on campus.
