Leslie Schettino served as the director of Ithaca College's Office of Student Disability Services. She began her work there in 1994, and in September 1999, started her tenure as director. All who had the pleasure of knowing and working with Leslie know the depth of her commitment to students and her willingness to advocate for those with special needs. Her leadership in this area made a great difference for hundreds of students throughout the years.
Leslie was known for her laughter, her gentle but strong determination, and her love for her family, students, co-workers, and animals, especially her dogs. She lived her life with an open heart and mind. She is greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
