Barbara Rose Hammon, November 21, 1955 – October 31, 2015
Barbara Rose Hammon will be forever in our hearts. She was a shining star in so many lives and the driving force behind the Hough Foundation for the past 12 years. Her passion for the well-being of children and their families was unequalled. She left us with a model of how we can serve others within our educational system.
Loving Mother, Friend, Mentor, Inspiration, Encourager, Nurturer, Caring Spirit - Barbara touched the lives of parents, teachers, friends, colleagues and countless children. Her legacy of love and compassion lives on. Beautiful inside and out, cherished by many and happily remembered.
The Hough Foundation builds bridges within our community by cultivating self-reliance, mentoring parents and students, advocating for mental health and social services, and providing classroom, after school and early learning enrichment opportunities.
Our vision is for a healthy, thriving community transformed by empowered citizens who are actively engaged in the creation of an environment where children and families learn, grow and strengthen their connections to one another.
