Faces of Hope: David Harris

Introducing our sixth Face of Hope, David Harris.

Through the Faces of Hope initiative, we seek to recognize and honor some of those people and entities that have been critical to the success of Hope Academy, Fairbanks’ recovery high school. The initiative seeks to tell Hope Academy’s story over the past 10 years through the stories of those who have been involved in helping to create Hope Academy’s history. Additionally, we hope it introduces even more people to Hope Academy’s mission through the meaningful stories of these faces who are so well known around Hope Academy.

David Harris went from being a lawyer who knew little about charter schools, but researched them for Bart Peterson’s mayoral campaign, to serving as Peterson’s charter schools director and establishing The Mind Trust. Hope Acaemy was one of Indianapolis’ first charter schools to open under his guidance.
