Every once in a while, you come upon an individual whose life was so bright,
entertaining, and full of energy that they long continue to inspire others, even after their presence is no longer with us.
Very rarely do you find that kind of spirit in a child, and even rarer is the thought that a toddler could inspire a community to reach into their hearts and donate to a cause set on giving children the greatest gift - books!
Books to let their imagination run wild. Books to help find a passion. Books for exploration
Books to kick start a lifetime of learning.
Our community suffered an incredible loss when this little boy left us in 2012. However, his light continues to shine as he instills a love of reading in the students of DISD. His legacy will be great, and his spirit will never be forgotten.
