Meyer, who spent four decades in Evergreen Public Schools, is going into Heritage’s hall of fame
Leta Meyer, a fixture at Heritage High School for 20 years after she helped open the school in 1999, will be the honorary team captain at Thursday’s Heritage-Evergreen football game and will be enshrined into the school’s hall of fame.
Meyer was the school’s athletic director and was the person who ordered all of the original Heritage Timberwolves swag, checked in the original gear to all the storage facilities.
Beyond her work with Heritage, she was instrumental in scheduling district tournaments in a number of sports for all schools in Southwest Washington. At one point, she was a member of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s executive board.
Meyer retired after the 2018-19 academic year after some four decades with Evergreen Public Schools. Before Heritage opened, she was a teacher and coach at Mountain View.
Heritage will host Evergreen at 4:30 p.m. at McKenzie Stadium on Thursday. Meyer will be an honorary team captain, and there will be a ceremony to recognize her contributions to the school at halftime.
To celebrate her career, we at Clark County Today are re-posting our profile from 2019, a story that celebrates how she battled just to play sports in the 1970s, then became a champion for all high school athletes throughout her career in education.
