A Celebration of Life
Howie Leifer was a beloved art teacher, pup- peteer, friend, mentor, and brother and on March 11th, people who knew him well gathered in our Kahn Family Theater to honor his life and share precious memo- ries. It was particularly touching when Neil, Howie’s brother, turned around to
face the audience and witnessed the many alums that
came back to honor their favorite art teacher. Howie
touched so many in his life and it was evident that he
would continue to inspire everyone in the room.
A sincere thank you to all who came to celebrate
Howie’s life – in person or in spirit.
We would also like to thank Ora Harder for providing some of Howie’s favorite foods, Dan Harder
for bringing in his painted jackets, Matthew Perifano
for help with the videos, and Neil Leifer for flying in
from New York to share this moment with the French
American and International community.
