From the time Leslie was two years old, cut her own hair and called herself “Ya Ya,” it was clear that she had very definite ideas about her life. One of her dreams came true when, as a young adult, she became a flight nurse for the AirLife team in Denver, CO. Though she was not scheduled to work, Leslie volunteered to take a flight out to help save an accident victim on December 14, 1997. The helicopter crashed, leaving no survivors. This fund was established in memory of Leslie, by her parents, to provide scholarship awards to graduating students of Skaneateles. To apply for this scholarship, please contact Skaneateles Central School/High School.
