About Steve Leakey
About twenty years ago, Steve Leakey and his wife, Ann, left Dallas to retire in The Woodlands, Texas, a then up-and-coming small town. As a former international technology sales executive, Steve was never one to stay idle for long. He jumped with both feet into his new hometown village association, leading them through many years of change. He calmly guided his neighbors through community issues like expansion and construction, while the governance structure of The Woodlands transitioned from the Community Association to the Township. All the while, he spearheaded the scholarship program for Lone Star College, mentoring numerous students over the years.
Also close to his heart is the Voter Awareness Council, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to encourage and equip citizens to vote. From working with high school students to organizing and encouraging unbiased candidate forums, Steve has earned respect from both sides of the aisle by making the voting experience a positive one. He works hard to promote civility and integrity among the candidates.
Steve is also active in The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce, particularly in the Business Advocacy Council and the Transportation Committees, lending his voice, calm demeanor and mutual respect to various community discussions.
Recently, Steve has taken on the volunteer opportunity of a lifetime, helping his daughter and her business partners launch the Texas Autism Academy. This school gives options to families with students not thriving in their current academic environment and customizes educational and developmental learning opportunities.
