About the Tuckers

Lisa, Carolyn & Robert Tucker

In their personal lives and through the operation of their highly successful business, Shoe Show, Inc., Carolyn and Robert Tucker and their family have exemplified the finest ideas of Gardner-Webb University through faith in action.

Because of their belief in Gardner-Webb's Christian foundation and purpose, they generously support the University. Most notably, they made our most transformative facility to date, the Tucker Student Center, a reality. By Mrs. Tucker's direction, the plaque on the front of the building carries the verse from Mark 12:29-31:

"The Lord our God is one, and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."


The family wishes to enable and encourage new generations of Gardner-Webb students to carry forward this legacy to make other peoples' lives better, in the spirit of the University motto, Pro Deo et Humanitate - For God and humanity.
