Are you fascinated with all aspects of history? If so, you have something in common with Kaskaskia College Foundation Director, Leonard Rose.
Getting to Know Leonard:
• Foundation Board member since 2018
• From Kinmundy
• Married to Sue
• Has 4 children and 3 grandchildren
• Owner of Salem Tax Service
• Graduate of Kaskaskia College
• Enjoys camping at locations across the country
Leonard chose to become a Foundation Director because he had a desire to help young people and provide them with an opportunity that he did not have when he attended college. Serving on the Foundation Board allows Leonard to see firsthand the impact the Foundation has on the lives of KC students.
We asked Leonard this question: “If you could have dinner with anyone living or deceased, who would it be?” His answer…”Abraham Lincoln”
Leonard said, “It would be an amazing experience to visit with the man who saved this country when it seemed to him the whole world was against him.”
A fun fact about Leonard is that he is a history buff. He enjoys giving talks to local clubs about historical events. In addition to Abraham Lincoln, Leonard is especially interested in the Revolutionary War, Lewis & Clark, the 1964 Cardinals Baseball team, and the Andersonville prison.
