Beacon of Hope

You may have heard about Beacon of Hope, a non-profit that Rosel Schewel, who just recently died, and others founded in 2011 to help Lynchburg City School (LCS) high school students realize the dream of continuing their education beyond high school at either a technical school or a college.

The Beacon of Hope “Future Centers” at both LCS high schools now help students with post-secondary school applications and with the search for financial aid.  These centers are 100% funded through community support.  Visit to learn more.
