To the teachers and administrators who are spending countless hours creating a new learning environment for our students, we would like to say thank you. For the parents, who are now turned educators, we would like to say thank you! To the community that always pulls together during times of need, like hurricanes or the present Corona Virus, we would like to say thank you. As we all know it takes everyone working together to get through the many struggles that life may throw at us and we at Hatteras Island Youth Education Fund want you to know that we care about you and families and we are here to help.
