KB Hope Scholarship

The KB Hope Scholarship is in honor of a courageous woman who was well-known in her community for her generosity and dedication to education. Family, faith, and community were the cornerstone of her life and when life presented her with the challenge of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), she faced it with determination and grace. The recipient should be a New Way graduating senior who plans to attend community college in the fall. The ideal candidate is someone who, like the honoree, embraces life to the fullest, overcomes challenges through courage, and shows genuine care for others.
