NBC4 news story featuring my brother!

wittyinventor's Avatargold

NBC4 is doing a story on my brother!  Marvin Hatchett has worked in the school district serving inner-city kids and the community for over 35 years!  A parent wrote NBC and they responded!  The story will air tomorrow, 02/24/17 at 4:45 p.m (PST). So, if you live in the Southern California area, tune in! For those outside of this geographic locale, the name of the show is "4 Our Heroes"  Thanks!

It's quite obvious that your brother cares a lot about those kids and vice versa.  It appears that he newscasters were blown away by your brothers selfless kindness.  Nice story.

Thank you so much Kim!  He's being flooded with so much support and well-wishes.  It's truly his calling.  He's touched countless, literally thousands of lives!!!  So grateful for the accolade. Sooo happy for him! Our parents would be proud!

They also recently performed at Disneyland!:

Hello EN Family! It's been a while. Been extremely busy. But all good things! Speaking of good things, I wanted to announce that the NBC's 4 Our Heroes story I shared last year, featuring Marvin Hatchett, was just nominated for an Emmy! What a way to celebrate 37 (going on 38) years of hard work and dedication. His story continues to resonate - especially given today's headlines. Needless to say, we're over-the-moon excited. Just wanted to share! Blessings everyone!

Hey Kathleen, who says your not family.  Well, you may not be bloodline family, but you are EN family....so in a round-about, distant, 5th removed, kind of way....you're family!!

I.e. in a my sister's cousin, uncle's, sister-n-law's, dad's, nephew's, EN sister kind of way :)
