HCCF’s 2005-06 campaign chairman is Bob Waller, president of Broadway Bank’s Kerrville branch. He is assisted by campaign co-chairwoman Diane Green, president of Kerr County Abstract and Title Co.; seven division chairmen and a cadre of other volunteers.

Advanced Gifts co-chairmen are Berna Jean Mattheis and Mike Hunter. Business Division co-chairmen are Brian Bondy and Guy Overby. Community Division co-chairwomen are Sue Robertson and Mindy Wendele. University Division chairwoman is Diana Comuzzie.

At the luncheon, Schreiner non-traditional student and HCCF recipient Patricia Rivera told the audience about her experience growing up believing that her dream of becoming a teacher was out of her reach. Now a wife and mother, she has discovered the joy of becoming a Schreiner University student and is well on her way to realizing her dream. She said she owes it to those who have supported the Hill Country College Fund.

Attending the HCCF kickoff luncheon were members of local service clubs: American Association of University Women, Executive Women’s Club, Host Lions, Kiwanis Club of Kerrville, Morning Rotary Club, Noon Rotary Club, Optimist Club and Sunrise Lions Club.
