Last spring, the Neag School family was saddened by the loss of John Leach, associate professor of bilingual-multicultural education. With the approval of Sofia Leach, John’s widow, the Bilingual-Multicultural Education faculty and staff honored his memory by establishing the John N. Leach Fellowship Fund to be awarded to graduate students who demonstrate financial need and academic merit. Preference will be given to students enrolled full-time in the Neag School’s Bilingual-Multicultural Education Program.
Our goal is to raise the $10,000 to establish the fund as an endowment. If the endowment minimum is not met , we will establish the fund as a non-endowed account.
We invite you to help honor John and support future teachers by contributing to the fund. Gifts can be made payable to: The UConn Foundation, Inc.” In the memo line please write: John N. Leach Fellowship Fund #22668.
Gifts can be mailed to: Abigail O’Brien, Director of Development, 249 Glenbrook Rd. U-2064, Storrs, CT 06269.
All funds raised will be administered and held by the University of Connecticut Foundation, Inc., a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization dedicated exclusively to benefiting the University. Donors to the Foundation have the right to request in writing that their gifts remain anonymous.
