For nearly half of its 60 year history, Collinswood Language Academy has sparkled thanks to Leonard Richardson. He's spent the past 29 years scrubbing floors, emptying the trash and making

sure the school is ready for students every day. When he retires at the end of June, his legacy will live on in the cafeteria that was recently named in his honor and in the hearts of the teachers, staff

and students he's helped.

The cafeteria was dedicated to Richardson in a special ceremony June 1. The school's 755 students gathered with parents, teachers and staff to celebrate Richardson and how he's made a difference in their lives.
