2018 FAIR SUPPORTER OF THE YEAR
Steve Leffel has made a lasting impact for the Miami County Fairgrounds for many years to come. Steve has had an instrumental part in completing the new restrooms located near the Horse Arena. Steve started from the first day with designing the building from scratch and finished on the last day by doing a final walk through to make sure everything was in place ready for the public. He attended countless meetings, redrew the plans multiple times, answered emails and phone calls throughout all hours of the day and not once asked for any type of payment. Steve volunteered his time to make sure the capital grant fairground improvement project stayed on budget and on task.
Steve was born and raised in Troy and graduated from Troy High School and then the University of Cincinnati. Steve was employed as a licensed professional engineer and professional surveyor in the state of Ohio until recently. He spent 31 years in public service with a current total of 47 years doing construction, design, utilities, engineering and land surveying work. Steve is married with 3 children and 4 grandchildren. In his free time, he enjoys cars, playing cards, and “making things” from a recycling stone patio to designing and building his house and subdivision.
