Andy Lecture is a 2013 graduate of Furman University, where he studied music education. He taught music for K-8 for 2 years. His life took him in a new direction after that, and he stumbled into the field of ABA with Project Hope in 2016. He is beginning his Master’s degree in ABA in July, and hopes to earn his BCBA certification.

In his free time, Andy likes to sing (with the Greenville Chorale and on staff at Christ Church downtown), perform theater, and do winterguard (he was a 2018 World Class Finalist, and 2015 Open Class silver medalist).

Project Hope has brought him so much perspective, education, and enrichment to his life, and he hopes he is able to do the same for our HAJ students!

Classroom RBT Assistant, Bekah Holbert


My name is Rebekah Kaye Holbert, and I am the classroom RBT for our HAJ Middle School classroom. I graduated from Lander University, located in Greenwood SC, with a BS in Psychology.

My favorite thing about HAJ, is I get to be a part of our students attaining the life skills that they will need when they are older.

When I’m not at Hope, I enjoy reading and playing with my dog, Moe.
