Photos with Jim Leonard
Jim Leonard attended Hanover College in about 1982 at the same time as Woody Harrelson. Jim wrote an award-winning play (the Diviners) which won him first prize at the National College Theater Festival for an original play. The original production performed at Hanover College (Hanover, Indiana) saw freshman Woody Harrelson getting cut from the play. Years later when Woody had become famous, he was given the college's "Alumni Achievement Award." Woody asked if he could produce Jim's play once again on the Hanover College stage, only this time he would play the lead.
