Landon Tucker

Fitchburg, Massachusetts

Landon Tucker, 17, of Fitchburg, Mass., a senior at Fitchburg High School, launched a community service initiative called “The Current Events Club” this past school year that, over the course of two months, mobilized students to collect more than $250 towards Hurricane Maria relief efforts and more than 600 articles of clothing for homeless teens. Motivated to create the kind of service opportunity he’d always hoped to find, Landon has inspired other schools to consider club chapters of their own.
