Project Description

Ky-mani Bell started life in a tough neighborhood and struggled in school. He joined the Sanctuary on 8th Streetís after school program in 2008 where he was identified as a bright, capable student who, like so many in our underserved communities, just needed a chance. When the Sanctuary staff presented an opportunity to attend Boys Town, a residential youth education program in Omaha, NE Ky-mani and his family felt it was just the change he needed. During his senior year he served as vice mayor for Boys Town, graduated with a 3.6 GPA, and was an integral part of the basketball, football, and track teams. Ky-mani has blossomed into a well-rounded young man and is ready to continue his education this fall at Midland University in Fremont, NE where he has been offered a partial scholarship to play football. The Sanctuary continues to be committed to Ky-maniís success and is seeking donations to close the tuition gap. A generous donor has committed a matching gift of up to $2,500. Will you be part of continuing Ky-maniís journey?
