Greetings, Dear Mission Of Hope Friends,
They are just your typical High School Awards Programs. That is until the names of the Scholarship Winners are announced. Then it becomes more than just a Program. They become incredible moments of accomplishments recognized; of hard work rewarded; and the moment that dreams come true for many.
We have now started awarding our 14 Mission of Hope Scholarships. And even though the drives are long and the evenings are late when we return to our homes; it’s an inspiring and encouraging wonder to behold as students walk across the stage with big broad smiles and say thank you, as you hand them their Scholarship Certificate. And on occasion there’s the “Joyful Gasp of Relief” like I watched and heard the other evening as our scholar recipient realizes that this will help them really get there!
We would welcome and be grateful for your financial donations as we strive to award more scholarships to students who dare to dream. And we implore them to DREAM BIG and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER let anyone steal their dreams!!!
Thanks for your friendship and support and for all you do to help us extend TrueHope.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission Of Hope
