Micheal Anthony Hughes Foundation

The name Michael Anthony Hughes embodied in the title of the Foundation is that of a dearly loved son and student whose life was cut short by death at only nine years old on March 25th, 1993, just as he was preparing to complete his third year of elementary school at Maurice W. Downing Elementary school in Malverne, New York.

Michael Anthony Hughes’s death was sudden and tragic. However, perhaps the most disturbing reality of this tragedy was that Michael had a dream. A dream that he never saw realized. Michael wanted to read. He struggled for years up late at night picking up everything and anything in front of him. He was always asking his sister, Titanya to help him. Rooted deeply in a religious household, Michael often read the Bible for comprehension not only of the words but the meaning of life Michael learned courage and faith while trying to learn to read.
