 Cole Leonard    Director of Development     Hometown:  Dacula, GA  Education:  BA- Public Administration (2015) Masters of Education in Administration of Higher Education (2017)  Hobbies:  SCUBA Diving, Offshore fishing, Auburn sports  Favorite Quote:  “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” –Wayne Gretzky  My name is Cole Leonard and I am the new Director of Development for Lyman Ward Military Academy. I am originally from Dacula, Georgia, but have found Auburn, Alabama to be home for the last six years. I have received a BA in Public Administration and an M. Ed in Administration of Higher Education, both from Auburn University. Personally, I greatly enjoy SCUBA diving and offshore fishing, as some of my greatest times in life have been on the water. I am an avid sports fan and follow Auburn sports and the Atlanta Falcons on a regular basis. My favorite quote is “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” by Wayne Gretzky. This quote has always stood out to me because it demonstrates the importance of going out into the world and experiencing new things. Life is an adventure, and I choose to make the most of every opportunity.
