He also maintains an ongoing relationship with Educational Testing Service as a Spanish Reader. Currently living near Tucson, Arizona, in their free time Leland and Ellen find the allure of summer alpine backpacking impossible to resist throughout the nearby western U.S. states. Leland is also Captain in the Civil Air Patrol in which he regularly trains in emergency services and flies aircraft in support of the U.S. Air Force. Finally, since March 2011 Leland and Ellen have learned the joyful distraction of grandparenthood.
