It is so special to remember Leon and the good times at North Georgia Tech. I'll always remember the difference that Leon made in so many lives, and when I became President at NGT, it was a valuable gift to know that Leon was someone I could trust and go to for guidance on matters about which I knew nothing!!! And he knew I knew nothing! My thoughts are there with you and I hope you find comfort in all the good times and the lives that were made better by Leon God bless. Ruth Nichols
