2017-18 BTC Calendar: Leon and Beverly Yancey Harris

Being the Change

Leon and Bev Harris believe in the power of education. That’s why, on learning about President Alger’s vision for Valley Scholars, they wanted to help the program that supports first-generation, financially eligible students with academic promise. Leon, president of Keltech Inc., an electronics manufacturing company in Roanoke, Virginia, and Bev, a Women for Madison Council member, made a leadership commitment to support Valley Scholars. Then they went one step beyond by encouraging others to get on board. The Harrises’ belief in the importance of education is further demonstrated by their support for the College of Education and the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts.
