Each year, Inheritance of Hope awards a well-deserving college-bound senior with the Legacy Scholarship. These scholarship recipients all share one thing in common: they all have a parent with a life-threatening illness.
Mike Barrett and his wife, Catherine, have generously funded the Legacy Scholarship for the past several years. Mike met IoH founders Deric and Kristen Milligan by chance when Deric and Mike were both studying in Australia. At that time IoH was in its early stages, but the business plan appealed to Mike.
“I knew, from my own personal experience, that it addressed an unmet need--that of finding a positive and life-affirming way for easing the pain associated with the impending loss of a loved one.”
Here, Mike describes why their gift has been a positive and life-affirming choice for his family.
