Greetings From The HOPE…Dear Friends. Did you know Mission of Hope has an endowment at Alice Lloyd College (ALC)? We are so grateful for this thank you letter and are sharing it to show what this endowment means to students who need help and HOPE to continue chasing their dreams. Our sincerest gratitude to Bill & Wanda Williams for this endowment in honor of their son, Michael. 

“Dear Mr. Thompson,
My name is Ashley, and I want to thank you and the trustees of Mission of Hope for the Bill and Michael Williams Family Endowed Scholarship Fund.  It is helping me to complete my senior year here at Alice Lloyd College and earn my degree.  I’m an English major, planning to pursue a career in writing.  With your help, I can finish my degree and have an extra boost at getting a job.

…I was worried about how I was going to pay for this year of school.  Alice Lloyd is already an affordable school, but there were still other expenses that needed to be paid.  I didn’t want to add pressure to my Papaw, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to meet the bills.  However, with this scholarship and the extra work hours that I’m allowed to put in here at school, I have been able to cover all of the expenses on my own.  I am so thankful to you and others who have helped me along the way and that I am now able to finish school and get my degree without worrying so much.”

Thank You For Helping Us Extend True HOPE.

Sincerest Regards,
Emmette Thompson
