What is she known for? Playing for the Lady Techsters during the program's time in the Western Athletic Conference and prior to the move to Conference USA, Beasley earned Academic all-Conference honors in each of her four seasons, adding two all-American Scholar Athlete trophies to her mantle in the process.
Here's something interesting... Leah offers a humorous twist in looking for a factoid on her life, noting a nickname of "Leftover Leah". "I can't stand to waste food," she says. "And [I] have been known to eat anyone's leftovers... from anywhere."
Quotable quote: "[to the newest generation of players]... CHERISH these moments and look for ways to constantly serve your teammates and coaches to make the whole program better. It sounds so cliche, but these will be the best moments of your life, keep your eyes open, and enjoy it."
What's she up to now? After graduation, Beasley joined her alma mater in an administrative role, as an assistant Athletic Director in the marketing department. She spent five years in that role before being promoted to Associate Athletic Director, a position she held until 2013 when she took a similar position at Mississippi State. In 2016, Beasley’s marketing team at MSU was named the “Marketing Team of the Year” by the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators. She currently holds the title of Associate Athletic Director over Marketing and Fan Engagement at Mississippi State.
