Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett spoke those words at his swearing-in ceremony
nearly 12 years ago. Since then, Mr. and Mrs. Leggett have worked tirelessly to ensure
Montgomery County is a great place to live, work, and go to school.
To create a lasting legacy of opportunity for all, Ike and Catherine Leggett recently established
a scholarship for students under-represented in higher education in the Achieving Collegiate
Excellence and Success (ACES) program, a partnership among Montgomery County Public
Schools, Montgomery College, and the Universities at Shady Grove.
Join the hundreds of donors who have already supported the Ike and Catherine Leggett
Scholarship. Your gift will provide students access to higher education for generations to
come. Contact the following individuals for more information.
“…I want to make certain that everyone has a seat at our table….
And if the table isn’t big enough, we’ll make it bigger.”
