Richmond Forum Honors Hinche Scholars Project during Anderson Cooper Speech

February 13, 2011
In conjunction with Anderson Cooper’s speech at the Richmond Forum, the Hinche Scholars project was invited to submit an essay describing our efforts. Click on the link below to access Danny Yates’ essay which will appear in the official event brochure. For more info, visit 
Anderson Cooper has been everywhere – from Baghdad to Cairo, from post-Katrina New Orleans to post-quake Port-au-Prince. A “typical” day for this accomplished CNN anchor and world-renowed journalist is never “typical.”
On February 19th, Anderson Cooper will be in capital city of Virginia at the Richmond Forum, a monthly speaker’s bureau. Thanks to the generous organizers of this event, the Hinche Scholars program has been asked to participate through the submission of an essay.
Please click the image below to access an article written by Danny Yates, which describes the creation of this project as well as Danny’s experiences in the aftermath of Haiti’s tragic earthquake last year. Thanks again to the Richmond Forum (particularly forum director Bill Chapman) for honor our efforts in this special way.
