Schools in District 158 have
been named after people who have had a major influence on the education of our
children. Katherine Leggee was an educator for 36 years, with the last 23 years
in Huntley. She retired from teaching in June of 1993.
Besides her teaching, Kathy Leggee was best known for her work in presenting the
annual 3rd Grade Abraham Lincoln play. Sandy Schultz, a 3rd
grade teacher at Leggee Elementary, had the honor to work with Mrs. Leggee and
stated that there “truly is no other person more deserving,” to have the
building named after. Kathy Leggee had a major influence not only on the
children whom she taught, but also the teachers that she worked with. If you
come to any of the many wonderful events that celebrate the students’
achievements here at Leggee Elementary, you are bound to meet Mr. Leggee who is
the building’s number one supporter. Mr. Leggee helps to carry on the wonderful
memories of such a talented, caring educator that touched so many Huntley
student’s lives. Elementary school buildings and programs are similar in design to
