Readers Are Leaders is an organization dedicated to eliminating illiteracy in elementary students while simultaneously fostering leadership skills in high school athletes.
Readers Are Leaders was founded in 2002 by Coach Wendell Byrd, a former second grade teacher for 31 years and head boys’ basketball coach at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA for 23 years. His current role as the Founder and Director of Readers Are Leaders matches elementary students with high school student-athletes to foster literacy in the former group and leadership in the later.
This program combines Coach Byrd’s commitments to focusing on reading and leadership skills as the key to empowering students to prepare them for life as positive role models and productive members of their chosen communities.
