Announcing the Jessie Hall Hemispherectomy Scholarship
Many of you know Kristi, Jessie’s Mom and my loving wife. And as you know, she is a caring, thoughtful, and compassionate person, who rarely thinks of herself and makes daily personal sacrifices for her family, coworkers, friends, and strangers. She is a beautiful person both inside and out.
Although, she cries and prays daily for Jessie, she has found time to come up with a plan to bring honor to Jessie and to help other kids who are faced with the challenge of Hemispherectomy Surgery, and who overcome the challenge to do great things.
Kristi is pleased to announce The Jessie Hall Hemispherectomy Scholarship. The JHH Scholarship fund is a one-of-a-kind fund set up exclusively to help children who have undergone a Hemispherectomy brain surgery, and who have gone on to do amazing things under the circumstances.
The JHH Scholarship will be awarded each summer to a child who has been accepted to an accredited university and will begin college in the fall. Initially, the JHH Scholarship fund will be funded by Kristi Hall with a commitment of $1000 per year for 20 years, or $20,000. It is her dream that eventually, through private and corporate donations, that this fund become endowed and enough money is raised to send all hemispherectomy kids, who are capable, to the college or camp of their choice.
The first winner of the Jessie Hall Scholarship will be announced in July of 2008 and we pray that Jessie will be there to present the award.
If your organization, or another organization that you know of who would be interested in supporting such a cause, please contact Kristi at Kristi@Hallzoo.com or 817-312-2265.
