Leah majored in Communication Arts while at Georgetown. She was active in choir/voice lessons, soccer, Kappa Delta and also participated in a study abroad program in England. Rumor has it that Leah was often seen singing the National Anthem at GC men’s and women’s basketball games during her time at Georgetown. Recently, Leah came back to campus and spent time with Communication Arts seniors discussing with them the professional challenges and opportunities they may face after Georgetown College.
Leah is married to Justin Willingham (Class of 2002) and they are expecting their first child this summer. They currently reside in West Chester, OH.
