Soar with Knowledge and HEMI
For the past three years, the mentees and mentors of the Higher Education Mentoring Initiative (HEMI), have assisted me in the creation and execution of works of art that express our mission and vision. Soar with Knowledge, our most recent work, celebrates the dreams and aspirations of the HEMI mentees and how education shapes our future. The open book with the owl are symbols of wisdom and strength. The abstracted puzzle pieces represent the decisions we make on the road of life. The Higher Education Mentoring Initiative helps prepare foster youth for educational opportunities beyond high school. The HEMI Program recruits, trains, and supports mentors to establish positive long-term relationships with foster youth.
Soar with Knowledge, will be auctioned off at the HEMI’s annual fundraiser, Run for the Roses! The Seventh Annual Run for the Roses: Kentucky Derby Fundraising Event is scheduled for 4:30 to 7:00 p.m., Saturday, May 6, 2017, but you can bid now. To bid on this work of art email me at email@example.com to register for bidding. The winner will be announced at the Derby event on May 6th 2017, and the highest bidder will take the home this wonderful work of art!
