Andrea A. Leonard Student Award honors beloved Development Teammate

Posted: January 12, 2012

A member of the College of Ag Sciences Family, Andrea Leonard, Assistant Director of Stewardship, recently passed away after a brief battle with adrenal gland cancer. She was a friend, teammate, and dedicated colleague to many and we are extremely saddened with her passing. Our only relief is knowing she is now in better hands and in pain no longer.

Andrea's incredible passion for her work was evident to everyone she met. Her career in Development spanned across campus but her most recent and most enthusiastic support was directed to the "College of Agricultural Sciences Development Office Student Award."

The award will be given to an undergraduate student enrolled in the College of Agricultural Sciences, who has exhibited qualities of volunteerism and philanthropy. Prior to Andrea's passing, this award was renamed the "Andrea A. Leonard Student Award" to recognize Andrea and her impact on our lives, the college, and the university.

In response to the many inquiries asking how to make a gift in her memory, contributions to the fund can be made to the College of Agricultural Sciences Development Office, 240 Ag Admin, University Park, PA 16802.
