Project H.O.P.E. Members Express Gratitude Towards Community Partners During Celebration


Press Release

Students and faculty from Pinnacle High School gathered in the Jennifer Levitt Center Tuesday evening to express gratitude and to honor community partners that participated in the school’s Project H.O.P.E Program. The theme for this year was “You Make All the Difference.”

“We often think that it takes a group of people to make a difference, that real change has to be legislated or mandated by a higher power,” said the Project H.O.P.E’s Coordinator, Zena Robinson. “Rarely do we realize that all it really takes is one person or one situation. It does take a village to raise a child but, as is evident by this program, it only takes one person to make a difference in a person’s life. You all have been that “ONE” person to these students and it has made a visible, tangible difference.”

Project H.O.P.E. provides academic instruction, hands on real-life experience as well as adult mentoring and fellowship all equally as important in a holistic approach.
