Leah Girard

Associate Director of Upward Bound

Leah is currently serving as the Associate Director of Upward Bound, but has held many roles with the program. Her involvement with the Upward Bound Program at Bemidji State started in 2007 and she has since served as an RA, Mentor Coordinator, teacher, and Outreach Coordinator. Leah completed her B.S. degree at Bemidji State University in both General and Applied Psychology with a minor in Sociology. She went on to pursue a Master’s in Education at Michigan State University.

Leah established a strong connection with UB students and staff and was excited to return to Upward Bound after graduate school. Outside of Upward Bound, Leah will find any excuse to be outside and enjoys taking advantage of any opportunity to go camping, running, or hiking.
