One of two new organizations into the United Way of Hamblen County, HOLA Lakeway helps those coming into the Lakeway Area from other parts of the world. Betsy Hurst took time to explain HOLA Lakeway’s mission. “HOLA Lakeway is a non-profit here in town who provides a lot of educational services, such as English classes and computer classes,” Hurst said. “Maybe when we come here, our education is not acceptable here. Sometimes we have to come back and begin from zero.” HOLA Lakeway has three goals, according to Hurst. “We have community resources, cultural events and education,” she said. “At HOLA, we are the aisle among the families, communities and schools. We help with school nutrition, parent-teacher conferences.”
