Paddling for a Purpose - The K L Hester Scholarship ProjectContributorsWritingsContact Me

All contributions are very much appreciated.  What makes this a great project is seeing all of the different communities, organizations and supporters who have come together, each contributing what they are able, and realizing that if everyone just gives a can make a lot.  Thank You for supporting this project, honoring the contributions of my father and helping the students of Swain County fulfill their dreams of a college education.

I also want to thank Len Sadosky for his incredible effort and wonderfully done webpages outlining the route for the project.  He put together all the maps with detailed information about the areas I'll be traveling.  Please take a look at the pages here:
Thanks Len!
