I am saddened to hear of Mr. LeBlanc's passing. Thanks to him, I joined the Region 10 family in 1980: I remained there for my entire teaching career. May you find comfort in knowing his fine legacy lives on in the many teachers he inspired and, in turn, the countless students they impacted. My condolences on your loss. Nina Fournier
