Helping Others Take the Journey to A College Degree and A Better Future
In 2009, the Mission of Hope began awarding $2,500 scholarships at each of the 13 high schools in the Rural Appalachian areas where we serve. Students who receive these scholarships may pursue an education at a 2-year, 4-year, trade or vocational school. The scholarships are renewable as long as the Student remains in good standing at their institution. Each Student also receives an MOH Mentor. The Mentors provide guidance, encouragement, and support throughout the students’ educational journey.
We are so proud of our more than 60 graduates! Many have faced incredible odds just to stay in school. They have endured hardships, personal challenges, family tragedies and other matters that could have easily stopped their pursuit of a diploma. But they have persevered, determined that they were going to finish their education and get their degree. We feel without hesitation…getting an education is the greatest tool we can use to help break the cycle of poverty. We believe it’s important for Students everywhere and especially in the rural Appalachian Communities we go to…to dream big and never let anyone steal their dreams.
