Why are you proud of Mountain Mission? The school lost sight of it's own mission over twenty five years ago. it does nothing for the community. Mountain Mission is not what it used to be.

I didn't realize it was the job of a school for young children to "DO" anything for the community. I thought it was the communities job to "DO" something for our future generations.

Mountain Mission serves the Northern Virginia area. Mountain Mission lost sight of it's mission to serve the local people many years ago. I'll bet Sam Hurley rolls in his grave.

My children are from right here in Grundy, and they go to Mountain Mission. Mountain Mission has treated my children like family along with several other local students. It is not the schools job to serve the local people, it is the schools mission to serve children in need and children wishing a loving and safe learning enviroment. Wich they do very well.

Old Grundy, you might be interested to know that people from the county stopped sending their kids to Mountain Mission as they used to, and stopped using it for its original purpose. Therefore, they have students from other areas...which are by no means limited to Northern Virginia. And many kids from Grundy still attend MMS as well. If you would take time to spend an afternoon there, you would find the most well-behaved, inspiring children on the planet.

I have to say that I'm proud of all the children...and all the children in Buch Co. should be treated the same...it's worse than pulling teeth to get anything done to improve Hurley,Grundy,Whitewood,Counci l High schools especially...give them new gyms!...I don't know how true it is...but I heard that it's the doctors kids are the ones that go to MM... the most needy ones are still in public school cause they can't afford anything else.

What does that charity CAFH--CHILDREN OF AMERICA FINDING HOPE ever do for the children in Buchanan Co? I saw in the paper where this charity got a large check from a coal co.Maybe we could get them to help these children this Christmas.

How many success stories has come out of this place? I can remember hearing how that school took boys back in the 50s and worked them worse than slaves.

Is this school still like an orphanage or is it a private school now? As for this charity mentioned here it is kept very secret from the public. The only people who know it exist is the receipent of all this money and his family and the donors who pour the money into his pockets.The supervisors poured our tax dollars to him with us telling them that he was a con man and this was a scam for personal use. The donors are These big National league ball teams and coal co. Etc. We are not talking about chicken feed here.

This school should be burned to the ground just like Dr. McDonald burned. This place was nothing but pure terror for young kids who had the misfortune of being orphans. My father was molested by Dr. McDonald when he was at MMS, and they did nothing to stop it. I say burn it to the ground.

Sam Hurley would turn in his grave if he knew what his school has become. MMS was once a school for orphans from Appalachia but now who knows where these children are from? How do they find out about MMS? Who directs them to this school? I'm perplexed! Does anybody know how the foreign children happen to end up in this isolated place?

Who is this person you'll are talking about with CAFH?

MMS is a private school. They charge mandatory tuition. Each year they raise the price... Lie to contributors tell them it is a school that serves low income. (not So) I took my children out because I could not afford to send them there. More are leaving this year,,

It is that low life rogue that lives on crooked branch road at Deskins. Saw on his site just now an average of $220,000.00 a year and has never done a thing for any child in Buchanan county. Also noticed on his site that the money you give walmart when you check out goes to him, among other big donors. Look up local charities or www.cafh.net .
