Jason Bingham Jr. Period 8th
The latest update of the three rich hills boys
Appachey-Update 8/14-Appachey turned 13 in January and celebrated the occasion at the Sundance Film Festival. Appachey's mom, Delena, is one of the film's strongest supporters.
Harley-Update 8/14-Harley is 17 and no longer in school, having dropped out in the 10th grade. He's struggling with serious health problems as, this spring, an MRI revealed a brain tumor wrapped around his optic nerve.
Andrew-Update 8/14-It's been less than a year since Andrew lost his mother, Elizabeth, just days before the Sundance Film Festival. Still, Andrew and his sister Alyssa finished the 9th grade in Stratton, Colorado, in June with strong grades.
The 12/15 update of the rich hill boys
Harley is still out of school and living in Rich Hill with his grandmother. Grandma Betty works in the neighboring town at Walmart as a baker. Harley works odd jobs.
Andrew is living in Colorado with his father - his sister, Alyssa, is still in Rich Hill. He is a junior in high school school and playing football.
Appachey was recommitted and is currently living in the Division of Youth Services facility in Rich Hill.
Off the highway, across from the railroad track, you'll find Andrew, 13, working on his bike, talking dreams with his dad or practicing dance moves with his twin sister.
Appachey, 12, dreams of becoming an art teacher in China and finds solace in skateboards and, despite his smarts, has had to repeat the 6th grade, which doesn't fix all the things that are broken in his life.
Harley, 15, lives with his grandma now, and eight other members of his extended family, because his mom is in prison.
