Who is the Leaverton Family?
The Leaverton Family has been actively involved in the St. Joseph community for many years. Ralph Roosevelt Leaverton, founder of Leaverton Auto Supply, came to St. Joseph in the 1920s and left a legacy continued today by his children and grandchildren. In holding with the Missouri Western’s educational commitment, Barbara Leaverton’s concern for those less fortunate and her true interest in education are evident through her commitment to the college, its students and the Pass the Power Adult Literacy Program.
