Maddie Brown is teaming up with the Asheville-based Christian non-profit, Sole Hope for her senior project.

At Franklin High School, seniors are required to complete a project on an approved topic. Students must write a research paper, make a presentation board and present an eight-minute speech in front of a panel of judges before they are permitted to graduate.

Brown decided to work with Sole Hope, which officially became a non-profit in April of 2010. The organization was started by Asher Collie, who was compelled to do something after a chance encounter with a YouTube video.
