Description:
Photographs and text from Women of Armstrong display (2007.). From Janet Stone's text: Leesa Bohler became President of the Armstrong Student Government Association in 1979. She had previously served as SGA Vice President, and she enjoyed a good relationship with Armstrong President Henry Ashmore. 1979, however was a difficult year. In the famous “swap” with Savannah State, Armstrong had just acquired all undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs in Savannah and had lost all of its business programs, which moved across town to the sister institution. Enrollment on both campuses suffered a serious drop, and both institutions entered a period of roller-coaster uncertainty as independent schools. If a political science major could help the SGA president navigate the sensitive political ground, Leesa was the right person in the right place at the right time. She could think well on her feet; she was articulate and capable, cool and collected. She had all of the skills she needed for her leadership role in Armstrong student government and as a future president of the alumni association.
