Meet Lenny the Snow Leopard

Lakeshore Technical College’s mascot, Lenny the Snow Leopard, represents the hardworking students, faculty, staff, and community supporters who understand a Lakeshore education offers hope.

Lenny arrived at Lakeshore Technical College in late 2021, traveling all the way from the rugged Eastern Himalayan Mountains of Central Asia. Why travel so far to reach our little college in the country? Its’s simple: Our community offered Lenny hope for a better quality of life.

Lenny sought shelter from the harsh conditions and difficult obstacles snow leopards face. Motivated by knowing Lakeshore offered a safe space and opportunity to grow, just as it does for the thousands of students each year, Lenny worked up the strength needed to set out to make a new home here.

The journey Lenny faced is similar to the journey many Lakeshore students face—one that requires:

  • Determination
  • Strength
  • Motivation
  • Support

Our students are determined to overcome all obstacles they face along their educational journeys. Lenny was determined to make the brave move here, learn new skills, adapt to college life, and succeed in our lakeshore area. We will support Lenny all along the way, just as we support students from start to degree completion.

Lenny is currently focusing on exploring our campus and community, getting familiar with all the new surroundings, making friends with the wildlife. Our hilly and forested areas of campus are among Lenny’s favorites, though don’t be surprised when you spot tracks in any of our buildings as curiosity often gets the best of this leopard! Considering how well Lenny is adapting to our campus and community, we’re confident you will see this adorable spotted ball of fur more often in the near future.

We encourage you to join Lenny by following your curiosity about all things Lakeshore. Explore our beautiful campus, get to know your classmates, join a student club, attend an event, ask questions. We are here to support you all the way through with resources to not only help you adapt to college life, but prepare you to succeed in the career that awaits you.
