“Ty and Terri Schenzel have created opportunities for thousands of Omaha youth, offered a path to a successful future and inspired the members, staff and community to continue his vision of Hope. Pastor Schenzel wanted to make an impact in our City. He certainly did,” Mayor Jean Stothert said in a statement.

The ceremony will be followed by a Hope Skate.
