Mr. Leavitt was an incredible coach who always got me and others to dig deeper.

Mr. Leavitt was the gold standard that all teachers and coaches should be held to. He could be a task master, but his intent was to always bring out the best in a student or athlete, and push them to their potential.
He was a true "Bill Belichick" when it came to track and field, he knew what points he could give and those he needed to get.
His button down collars and classic ties were his uniform and soon became mine as an adult, thank you, Mr. Leavitt.

He did have a soft side, as we gathered once a year to celebrate the Roman festival of Saturnalia he would done his Toga and his laurel wreath. I believe he smiled and laughed the entire celebration. But, that is who he was, a gifted teacher, a strong believer in tradition, and a tremendous coach.

Thank you sir.

Mr. Leavitt was hands down the most influential person during my time at Marblehead High. As the cross sountry coach he never let us slack off always pushing us to perform to the best of our abilities. II'll always remember rounding the bend on a run to find his Le Car hidden away waiting for us to run by. As my youngest has taken up cross sountry I find myself searching my memory banks for his inspirational words, trying to figure out what exactly it was that made us want to work so hard for him. No one ever died from running and Don't rest on your laurels come to mind but it was more than that. I think it was deep down we knew his vision of who we were was bigger than anything we thought possible for ourselves and we wanted to become that for him. I am so grateful to have known him. Rest in Peace.

Mr. Leavitt left a lasting mark on me as my coach and teacher for my four years at MHS. To this moment, I remember to learn something new every day and can still conjugate the verb to love. <3 Rest easy, sir.
