“Educating Our Youth Today For A Better Tomorrow!”

The HLH Memorial Fund has been a sponsor for 3 years of the Illuminate Fellowship, formerly known as "Youth for Christ", at DeQuincy High. The students are given an inspirational message and a meal. In 2016 the Fund invited representatives from Unitech Training Academy of Lake Charles to give a mini workshop. Mr. Joseph Lavergne, Director of Recruitment, Career Guidance and Placement at Sowela came and gave a presentation on the impact it has had in Southwest Louisiana.

The recipients of the 7th Annual 2017 HLH Memorial Scholarships are Roy "Trey" Champagne/$1000 University Award and Ashlyn Smart/$500 Technical Award. The 8th Annual 2017 Holy Smoke BBQ Cook-Off and Praise Festival, a member of Louisiana Association of Fairs and Festivals, will be held on the 4th Saturday in October which will be on October 28, 2017. The Cook-Off provides funds for the Scholarship and other projects during the year. The 5th Annual Back to School Blast has and continues to be a great help to families in the community and is scheduled for August 4, 2017. Donations are welcomed and the Fund is also a registered Non-Profit with the State of Louisiana.

The Harry L. Hooker, Sr. Memorial Fund was birthed in 2009 after the untimely passing of the foundation's namesake and visionary, Elder Harry L. (Colonel) Hooker, Sr. It is a community service organization.

From the HLH Memorial Fund's inception, it has been a joint effort of family, friends, churches, concerned community individuals and business leaders that continue to support the vision.

The HLH Memorial Fund is a lifetime Member of the Railroad Museum.

The Fund’s Founder and President, Darlene Provost-Hooker, is a Board member of The City of DeQuincy Chamber of Commerce, DeQuincy Elderly Housing Board (CCOA), L.O.V.E. Community Mission and Charter Member of Guiding Light COGIC of DeQuincy. For information contact Darlene P. Hooker at 337-786-6265.
