The Montgomery College Board of Trustees passed a resolution to name a new Math and Science Building to honor County Executive Ike Leggett and his wife Catherine Leggett. The building will be located on Montgomery College’s Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus.
For students, the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus Building will be a key component in their paths to completion since every college student in Maryland must take math and science courses to obtain a degree. The Catherine and Isiah Leggett Math and Science Building will replace the out-of-date classrooms and labs in buildings that are 56 and 38 years old. The plans for this modernization have been in place for almost 15 years. The College anticipates construction of the new math and science building to start in December 2019 and to open for the fall semester of 2022.
