Making History at the 2015 Annual Auction

Posted by on Nov 19, 2015 in Stories from The Patch | 0 comments

When the time came to develop a theme for the 2015 Annual Auction, we looked to the success stories of our alumni for inspiration. Many Cabbage Patch members have made history in their families by becoming the first to go to college, the first to earn a degree…the first to show future generations what is possible. Where can history go from there? The accomplishment of just one person may seem small, but the influence can be enormous! It may inspire the first female President or the first cure for a disease. We make history by driving the message “you can!” home, one child at a time.

Announcing the new Kim Hazelwood Glass Library and Myra Lee Book Nook!

Posted by on May 18, 2015 in Stories from The Patch | 0 comments

One of the most inspiring success stories to come out of The Cabbage Patch is that of the late Kim Glass, who was the first Cabbage Patch College Scholar and, later, a Patch Board member. Thanks to her hard work and the opportunities afforded to her because of her active participation in our programs, Kim became an architect and was a driving force behind The Patch’s facility expansion which was completed in 2009. In honor of Kim’s inspirational legacy at The Patch and her daughter Myra Lee’s love of reading, her friends at Virginia Chance School had a vision for the perfect tribute. This vision has become reality in the newly dedicated Kim Hazelwood Glass Library and Myra Lee Book Nook.
