Dear Mission Of Hope Friends;
We have recently launched a new avenue of encouragement for the School Children we are so privileged to serve; in rural Appalachian Community Elementary Schools. It really begins the early seeding, of what our Scholarship Program is trying to do; and that’s encourage Kids to “Stay In School & Graduate!”
Bill Williams & Brian Holt recently did a powerful and inspirationally uplifting story, for WBIR-TV in Knoxville, TN; about this exciting new program. I also want to acknowledge and thank Stan & Jackie Johnson, long time Mission Of Hope Friends; for helping create and implement this first time event for The Hope, as well as the Staff at Hayes Lewis School.

Thank you for your friendship and support and for all you do to help us extend True Hope.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission of Hope
