When the school year comes to an impending close, students of Allen Community College begin to scramble around campus eager to finish their school activities and classes. But left behind in classrooms, or around the Allen campus, is student’s personal property.

The lost and found box has reached an unheeding height this semester. Although students may search for these lost objects, they tend to give up and buy new things to replace them.

It’s sad to see really good items in very nice condition go to waste.”

— Becky Leis

Becky Leis, an administrative assistant at Allen Community College and the friendly face students see in the front office, obtains all objects and holds them for two years, at which time they are then donated or up for free grabs to any student.

“I have had dentures turned into lost and found,” Leis said.

She also said that Good Samaritan students have even turned in money, ear buds, water bottles, clothes, phones and keys.

“We here at Allen try to return objects to the rightful owner,” Leis stated.

Because Allen students have a full load of classes and activities, they predictably tend to forget to pick up the items and just leave them to collect dust.

Leis said, “It’s sad to see really good items in very nice condition go to waste.”

Leis also laughed while sharing some of the odd and funny moments of things that have been turned in, for instance used and empty ChapStick cases, drawings and single socks and shoes — even retainers.

The lost and found box is in the admissions office in the A complex building.  So, Leis suggested, if there is ever a time in which something of value has gone missing, ALWAYS remember to check lost and found.
