Mr. Leon F. Blosser - Outstanding Alumnus (1956)
Leon F. Blosser - Following his graduation from Boiling Springs H.S., Leon graduated from Elizabethtown College and Reformed Episcopal Seminary. He taught Language Arts at Boiling Springs Elementary School and served as President of the Faculty Association in 1963. In 1964, Leon and his family traveled to the Middle East to serve in mission work for the next 13 years. They returned to Carlisle where Leon served as Associate Pastor at Grace Baptist Church and was Head Master of the Christian School at Grace Baptist. In 1990, Leon and his wife returned to the Middle East filling the appointment of Chaplain and Translator at American Mission Hospital in the Kingdom of Bahrain. After retiring in 2000, Leon served as visiting instructor at Dickinson College and continues to serve as pulpit supply in local churches. Leon was nominated for the Wall of Acclaim by his daughter, Phoebe Bookamer. (Leon Blosser - Photo by Dennis McMahon I-Cubed/Webmaster)
In January 1957 Leon Blosser entered PBI and, like Oscar, worked in order to help pay for the cost of room, board and schooling.
Soon both Bloise and Blosser became close friends, sitting next to one another in class, working as elevator operators, cleaning classrooms, and studying together in the dorm. Meanwhile Blosser, who was a member of Grace Chapel in Carlisle, Pennsylvania (later renamed Grace Baptist Church), had a summer job waiting for him. Leon wrote to Ernie on Oscar's behalf, and Ernie promptly promised Oscar work for the summer. Very early every morning Leon's mother packed lunch boxes for both Oscar and Leon, but Oscar was expected to be at the Blosser table for evening meals and Sunday dinner (i.e. noon).
