Faces of Hope: Pat Garrett Rooney

Introducing our third Face of Hope, Pat Garrett Rooney.

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.

Given her long history of helping children – from working at a school for disabled adolescents to hosting a children’s TV show and having three kids of her own – Pat was a natural choice to serve on the first board of Hope Academy.
