Meet Leonard Harris

Leonard Harris

Current title/school? Crossing guard on Main Street in front of Leon Heights Elementary.

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? There are many people that can be inspired with just a smile and a kind wave or word. I feel like I do that - or at least I try to daily.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I am pretty shy and usually keep to myself, but people think otherwise because I smile and wave all the time.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? One pivotal moment for me was when someone expressed their feelings to my wife about the difference that I made for them on one of the saddest days of their life. We never know what people are experiencing on a day-to-day basis. A simple smile, wave or kind words of "good morning" can mean wonders to so many. I have had people stop and pray for me because they wanted me to experience a blessing. A man once told me I blessed him daily as he walks past my work site.

Academics? 1985 Bartlett High School graduate.
