Faces of Hope: Lora Socks

Introducing our ninth Face of Hope, Lora Socks.

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.

Lora was a gifted student and athlete before family and financial instability rerouted her to substance abuse. Enrolling at Hope Academy and guidance from a recovery coach helped turn her life around.
