Winner 2019 Chad Smith “Smalls” Memorial Scholoarship
Ms. Lia Haile – Wisconsin
Founder Hopeful Hearts Club
An organization dedicated to providing hope to homeless children and their families.

For the past few days we have had the privilege of reading over 61 of the most inspiring stories of hope from people all across America, who applied for our annual $500 “Small’s” Memorial Scholarship!

Earlier this week we announce the winner, Ms. Lia Haile of Wisconsin. Lia was the only one to score a perfect 26 out of 26 in the areas we were most focused on. Significant work with our homeless communities, demonstrated leadership, a strong essay, and a strong letter of reference.

This remarkable young lady founded an organization called Hopeful Hearts Club at the very young age of nine to help provide hope to homeless children in her community of Manitowoc, WI.

The Hopeful Hearts Club at “Hope House” began by providing birthday parties to homeless children and it has since grown to provide so much more, including support for food and other of life’s necessities. 

Lia has not only provided hope in her community to hundreds of homeless young people, she has also inspired adults young and old alike to get involved, and has helped shine a light on homeless issues facing our homeless all across America.

We are excited to see where life takes this young lady. Wherever it is, we know she is only limited by her own imagination!

Congratulation Lia!
