At the FHS Student Council Homeless Vigil last night, an appreciation moment was held to honor Tommy Grace, the founder of the Homeless Vigil in 1995, who passed away earlier this year. Tommy served as the first Homeless Liaison for Fayetteville Public Schools, and he staged the Vigil by himself for the first four years. The FHS Student Council wanted to become involved, and in 1999 Tommy handed the Vigil off to STUCO, who has conducted the Vigil every year since. STUCO and the Grace family raised funds for a memorial plaque that will be placed at FHS near the site of the Vigil each year to honor and remember Tommy Grace. Tommy's daughter Drew Grace-Sikes , his sister Jonelle Lipscomb, and many friends attended the appreciation. Since its inception, the Homeless Vigil has raised well over $200,000 for students in need in Fayetteville Public Schools and their families. Thank you, Tommy!
