By establishing this Foundation, we are fulfilling the wishes of Edward Hopkins to provide educational opportunities for the youth in the frontier. Since the intent of the Foundation is to provide financial support on an annual basis, we need to secure funds to meet this goal. Your support is greatly appreciated.

This area is named “Academy Lane.” If you haven’t yet visited the site, please do so. You will see bricks that have been purchased to honor community members and Hopkins alumni.
