Erica Leonard of Parishville was installed as the 2016-2017 president of the Rotary Club of Potsdam at its annual dinner in June.

During the ceremony, Amanda Crump of Colton was also recognized as outgoing president.

Leonard grew up in the Potsdam area, but moved away for 15 years. She returned, so her daughter could attend Clarkson University and so Erica could give back to her community.

In the hotel business, Leonard is the general manager of the University Suites Hotel in Canton. She received her bachelor of science degree in industrial organizational psychology & business from Pennsylvania State University.
