Your gift celebrates the value of education and provides brighter futures for thousands of students like Nick.
Nick had tears and refused to get out of his father’s car at school one morning during the sixth grade. “I felt like something was going to happen when I stepped into school. That someone was going to come up and hurt me or something.”
When asked what it feels like to be dropped off in the morning now at Lake Forrest thanks to the Hope Scholarship, Nick said, “It’s one of the biggest sighs of relief that I ever had.”
