Will Watson
            As a successful Air Force Academy graduate, Will Watson, a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force, reflects on his challenging but momentous experiences at the Boys Hope home.  In his boyhood days, he dreamt of manning the jet planes he watched soar overhead.  But this dream seemed to drift further and further away from reality and into fantasy as time progressed.  Family circumstances found themselves too difficult to be managed, and his aspirations felt intangible. 
            However, in 1995, at the age of 14, Will’s situation was discovered.  He was moved from the shelter, where he had been living, and joined the Boys Hope Girls Hope family.  Though his story is unique, he gratefully reminisces about his time being pushed and encouraged by the Boys Hope Girls Hope staff and board members to work towards the future he can today call his present.
