The 16th Annual Ball and Bee

Academy of Hope hosted its annual Ball and Bee on June 3, 2011, celebrating 26 years of successfully transforming the lives of Washington, DC, adult learners. We would like to send a special thank you to everyone who helped make the 2011 Ball & Bee a spectacular event. This event would not have been possible without our board members sponsors, students, distinguished guests, volunteers and staff. 

The 2011 Ball and Bee, held at the Katzen Arts Center at American University, was a great success. We celebrated Academy of Hope’s mission to provide high quality adult basic education in a manner that changes lives and strengthens our community. Two learners, Kenneth Tolliver and Valerie Moore, took the stage at the program to share their stories and illustrate how their lives have been impacted by our educational services. With such a wonderful night we have already begun the planning for the 2012 Ball and Bee.
