"You made a huge impact on me and my experience in college. I have changed my approach to study and participation in campus activities. My grades are higher than I ever thought I could achieve.

"The things professor Leis taught me have had a huge impact on my life! I was a stocking clerk in a drugstore while I was in college. But I made such an impression on both the manager and one of the district managers from a supplier, that one day, the DM asked me if I would be interested in joining his company. Great salary, benefits, company car, and a cell! That only happened because of the lessons professor Leis taught me."
