Hinche Scholars Attend Leadership Forum, Prepare for Thanksgiving

November 22, 2011

It’s not everyday that a displaced Haitian university student gets to shake hands with Colin Powell. But that is exactly what happened this weekend when the Hinche Scholars attended the Building Leaders Symposium at St. Christopher’s School in Richmond.

This two day program included a full schedule of motivational speeches, networking and workshops which the four students collectively described as “amazing.” A special thank you to the I Have a Dream Foundation and the Henshaw family for making this unique experience possible.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we would also like to take this time to extend a sincere “thank you” to all of our supporters, through whose generosity this project has been possible. As the Hinche Scholars prepare to enjoy their first American turkey dinner this Thursday, we can only think of one thing to say and that is “THANK YOU!!!”
