This week’s Community Hero’s known for giving young people in the region… hope.
Kingsport’s Stella Robinette is the founder of H.O.P.E.TriCities.
The program educates young people on things like: career paths, taxes, interview skills, personal finance, and etiquette.
Members go on college tours… and are exposed to things that they may not otherwise attend… like cruises and dining in fine restaurants.
Her friend, Shirley, says Stella’s workshops on home ownership, and improving your credit score help lift families out of poverty.
