Leigh A. Young
Leigh has worked at UT Arlington since 2001 completing the administrative tasks for the University Advising Center, Student Success Programs, University Studies, and now for the Administrative Office for University College. Her favorite word is "possibilities." She always wanted her own horse and has finally gotten one 50 years later. She has a cat named Chuck Norris who squeaks instead of meows, a horse named Sondra, a grand-dog named Nolan, two grown-up daughters and a husband. In her spare time she rides her horse and tries to convince her husband that cowboy boots are an important addition to his wardrobe.
