Dear Mission of Hope Friends;


At the Mission of Hope, we try to help Students who desire to have a better life and also better themselves. We have learned firsthand, that the only true way to break the cycle of poverty is through Education. Students have to graduate, Students have to obtain skills; and these Students have to be uplifted and encouraged, so that they can graduate and succeed in life. What motivates a Student in a depressed environment and a hopeless situation to keep going? I would offer to you that it is simply HOPE.

It’s a very special time here at the HOPE as we celebrate the Graduation of 8 more of our Mission of Hope Scholars this May for a total of 79 Graduates. These Graduates have received degrees in various fields such as Nursing, Accounting, Education, Business Administration, Occupational Therapy, Agricultural Economics, Welding, Communications, Diesel Mechanics, Social Work, Public Administration and Mechanical, Civil & Industrial Engineering. This my friends…is HOPE FULFILLED.

The Mission of Hope Scholarship Program is trying to help those that dare to dream. We began several years ago with Scholarship Endowments at Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, KY (in honor of the Bill Williams Family) and Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN (in honor of the Andrew Courtney Family). Now for the fourteenth consecutive year, we are awarding $3,000 Scholarships to 19 NEW Graduating High School Seniors, 1 Alice Lloyd Student, 1 LMU Student and 2 Clear Creek Bible College Students for a total of 23 New Scholarships. In Fall 2022, we will have 59 Scholars on active Scholarship.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CONTINUE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THESE STUDENTS LIVES. You can support our Scholars by donating to the Scholarship Program. For information on the various ways you can Donate click on this link:  Please be sure to designate \”Scholarship\” when making your donation.

Thanks For Your Friendship And Support And For All You Do To Help Us Extend True HOPE.

Emmette Thompson – Executive Director
