A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
Let's Make a Difference
Leigh Bodden was born in Washington DC and at the age of 10 moved to Prince George's County, MD, with his mother and three siblings and has been a residence of PG County ever since. As a 10 year old, in 1991 Leigh witnessed the airing of The Rodney King beating on local news stations and that tragic incident sparked his initial interest in fairness, justice, and advocating for human rights. Leigh recognized that supporting his community and views required increasing his knowledge and broadening his understanding of organizations and group dynamics. So, after graduating from Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, MD, Leigh was provided the opportunity to attend Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA and he seized it. Leigh received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration while excelling as an athlete and earning entrance in the National Football League (NFL) through his dedication, perseverance, and work ethic.
