Leanna Mouton currently serves as the Bobcat Pause Director and Programming Director within the Dean of Students & Leadership Institute at Texas State University. She coordinates all Student Foundation responsibilities for planning a Presidential Memorial service where the community comes together to honor the members of our Texas State family that we have lost during the past year. As the Programming Director, she is responsible for coordinating the Retreat/Member Education, Social/Recognition, and Service/Outreach Coordinators for the Student Leadership board. Leanna also serves as Residential Assistant for the Department of Housing & Residential life at Texas State University.
Leanna is currently a sophomore Honors student at Texas State University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a minor in Communication and Honors Studies. Her big dream is to Franchise the only theme park in the whole entire world that is accessible to people of all ages with special cognitive and physical needs. That theme park is called “Morgan’s Wonderland” and is in San Antonio, Texas. She would like to franchise it in as many locations as possible to bring experiences to people beyond their wildest imagination that would have never experienced it otherwise. She says that, “If you ever are blessed with the experience to see the joy in a mother’s eyes while she pushes her adult handicap child on a swing for the first time ever, you will understand how underrepresented this community is and how they too deserve happiness.” She is a strong advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and works every day to create a world of acceptance, opportunity, and friendships for this generation and future generations to come.
Outside of her educational pursuits, Leanna invests her time trying new things, working out, volunteering, baking, traveling, and spending time with her loved ones.
