Humanitarian, Visionary Leader

— Service Above Self —

Dr. Leslie A. Bostic served 40 consecutive years as the founding executive director of the Buckeye Ranch (formerly Buckeye Boys Ranch) in Grove City. He earned his undergraduate degree and Master of Social Work from the Richmond Professional Institute of the College of William and Mary and Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. Prior to the Ranch, he held positions as a prison guard, probation officer and clinical social worker. Under his leadership, the Buckeye Ranch campus of nearly 100 acres grew beautifully without creating debt or obtaining a single line of credit. Dr. Bostic raised nearly $4 million to fund the building of the Kroger Equestrian Therapy Center, the Mary Dunn Administration Center and the Hughes Family Life Center. After retirement from the Ranch, Les served as the City Administrator for the City of Grove City. He has received countless awards and recognition and has served on major boards of directors throughout Ohio. He received the Governor's Award to Ohioans in 1974 from John Gilligan and in 1998 from George Voinovich. Les Bostic is truly an individual who has genuine love for mankind.
