Rita Riggs, born in Lead Hill, died in 2017. Daughter of J. Almus Riggs and Ida V. Keeling Riggs of Lead Hill. Rita was memorialized at this year’s Academy Awards. She was as a costume designer starting in 1954, working on many movies and TV shows. Rita received the Career Achievement Award in Television and in 2016 the Career Achievement Award in Film and Television. She was a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. When she visited us here in Lead Hill, she was “Rita,” friendly, humble still maintaining property around town. She was proud of her roots which proves that young people can take their “Small Town America” experience anywhere and be successful as so many from this area have.
