TIBBIE LESLIE TRAVEL GRANTS
Elizabeth Randolph Leslie, known as Tibbie, was raised in Newark, Ohio. She graduated from Newark High School in 1950 and from Miami University in 1954. Ms. Leslie taught physical education at Withrow High School in Cincinnati for 30 years. Every summer, she returned to Newark to visit her family then left for a trip abroad. She traveled extensively with a group of educators; going to Europe, South America, China, Africa, and many other exotic places. Her learning experiences on these trips were so meaningful that she decided to help other teachers travel. Ms. Leslie died in 1995. She established the Tibbie Leslie Fund at the Licking County Foundation through her will.
