Leigh Bryant, Graduation Coach, has been with Key School for almost 20 years. After moving every 2 years for 22 years as a Naval Officer’s wife, she made her home in Arlington, Texas close to family. Returning to her passion, she found her perfect fit at Key School. With a degree in English for Secondary Education from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Mary Ann Key hired her within her first year in Texas.
Her second year at Key School, the position of Student Advocate was newly established. With this new position, Mrs. Bryant began to have a deeper understanding of the heart and challenges of a Key School student. With a motivation to intervene for Key School students when they needed to be heard brought new fulfillment to her career. While Mrs. Bryant enjoys the beauty of the English language, her deepest concern every day is the welfare of the students, both emotionally and academically.
Mrs. Bryant oversees the transition process of the seniors from secondary education to their post-graduation path. She feels that there is no greater satisfaction than seeing students growing into thriving life learners. Enjoying the privilege of watching this process is one that she treasures.
