Leah's chosen mentor is Kings High School Counselor, Erika Volker.
 
Leah is the daughter of Mark and Heidi Malburg. She has maintained a 4.29 grade point average while in high school, taking some of the most rigorous academic classes offered. As a four-year member of the varsity volleyball team, Leah earned the Red, White & Blue award in 2019 for hard work and dedication to her team.

The Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award was established in 1989 by Ohio’s County Superintendents to recognize student achievement and promote academic accomplishment. One senior from each of Ohio’s eighty-eight counties receives this prestigious honor each year.
