Held at the Governor’s Mansion, attendees included Denver Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila; Msgr. Thomas Fryar, vicar general; and Teresa Major, who with her husband Jim are parents of 12 children, six of whom attend St. Louis School in Englewood.
The Majors’ oldest daughter, Emily Major, teaches sixth-grade at St. Catherine of Siena School in Denver. “I can’t thank you all enough for giving children the opportunity of a lifetime,” Teresa Major said. “To know that there are people out there who care enough to want to help families like ours better educate our children is such a blessing.”
Seeds of Hope has served nearly 14,000 students and given more than $23 million in tuition
assistance since its inception in 1996. To learn more about Seeds of Hope, or to sign up for future events such as the April 12 Hope Springs Eternal luncheon, visit www.seedsofhopetrust.org.
