Stan Tucker is the Founder of Leap For Literacy. LFL was formed because of an experience Stan had as a second grade teacher at a Title I school. He saw the excitement the kids expressed when the book fair came to school, but most of the time that excitement was short lived because most of the kids couldn't afford the books. Stan wants to share the gift of reading with thousands of students each year by donating new books. If just one child develops a love of reading due to a book donation, he feels that the program is justified. His passions are education, teaching and mentoring young people.
