Our deepest sympathies go to the family and friends of Edward Almand Leonard, who passed away Friday, March 11, 2016, at the age of 81.

Dr. Leonard earned a Ph.D. in Political Science at Emory University, and taught the subject with a fierce passion for decades. Former students often use words such as “captivating” and “entertaining” when speaking of his classes.

Dr. Leonard was part of our San Jacinto College family for 20 years, from August 1983 through May 2003. While working at San Jacinto College Dr. Leonard was a dedicated Government Professor and also served as the Director of Continuing Education for several years at the South campus.
