Hinche Scholars En Route to Richmond!!!

August 5, 2011

After nearly a year and a half of patience, hard work and tireless dedication, the Hinche Scholars project is finally on the brink of achieving our long-awaited goal!

On Thursday August 11th, four displaced Haitian college students will arrive in Richmond, VA. In the coming weeks, these four Hinche Scholars will begin classes at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.

Please join the I Have a Dream Foundation of Richmond on 8/11/11 at 3:45 pm when we gather at Richmond International Airport to welcome the four students. We look forward to welcoming Berry Riche, Suze Prince, Lude Labieville and Frandy Prince!

For more information please contact Danny Yates at 804-543-7297. Please feel free to invite your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to this exciting event so that we can show a strong Richmond welcome to these four young people.
