Hope for Tomorrow celebrates the beginning of its 22nd year of mentoring young teens in Bloomington at Valley View Middle School and Oak Grove Middle School.
At the same event a celebration was held to honor Kathy Reis, a 15 year mentor who has lead the Oak Grove Hope for tomorrow Girls Chapter for many years while also serving on the Bloomington Operating Board as well as having served many years on the Hope for Tomorrow Executive Board. Kathy and her husband, who recently retired are moving out of state to enjoy their children and grandchildren on the east coast and winters in Florida with family and friends.
We wished them much happiness and thanked Kathy for her years of dedicated volunteer work with Hope for Tomorrow.
Attending the event to thank all of the mentors who have been there for Bloomington teens was Bloomington Mayor Gene Winstead. He expressed his thanks on behalf of the City of Bloomington where Hope for Tomorrow was founded in 1997; Sharing his interest in and the importance of mentoring today.
