The first public lottery drawing took place March 15, 2007 at 10 am in the Senior Leadership Conference Room at Hope Community Resources (540 W International Airport Rd.). It was a historical moment for us! The Honorary Consul of Germany, Bernd Guetschow, witnessed the event and drew the grades and names. Two parents (Mrs. Debra Schwicht in the photo) volunteered their time and attended the drawing, too. Others present were founding board members Jo Sanders, Klaus Mayer, Antje Carlson, and Max Gruener.
