Academy of Hope featured on CBS News and on WAMU 88.5's Community Minute

CBS News
Earlier this year, a CBS crew came out to Academy of Hope to film for a segment about nonprofits "you should know about". Susan McGinnis, CBS reporter, talked to an adult learner and to our Executive Director, Lecester Johnson.  CBS was also present during Academy of Hope's recent graduation on February 1st, where they captured great moments of the emotional event and words from one of our graduates, Darnetta Hollis.  The segment was aired on various CBS channels and affiliates over the weekend of February 15.  We're so happy to share this video with you!
