Leet Center Celebration

Northwest Missouri State officials celebrated the opening of the Phyllis and Richard Leet Center for Children and Families this past weekend with a special dedication ceremony.

The Center is located inside the Horace Mann Laboratory School and is made possible by a gift from Northwest alumni Phyllis and Dr. Richard Leet of Gaynseville, Georgia. During the dedication ceremony, Phyllis Leet said the idea for the Center came after a tour she had taken of the Horace Mann school.

The Leet's contributed over 100 thousand dollars to the Center which houses preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classrooms. The Center opened with the start of the academic year this fall.
