Wells Fargo Presents $3,000 Check to Hill Country College Fund
Wells Fargo Bank president Roy Thompson recently presented Schreiner University’s Hill Country College Fund with a check for $3,000 to help fund need-based tuition assistance grants for area Schreiner students.
“Wells Fargo is a wonderful company that is invested in the education of our local students,” said Jennifer Farhoudi, associate director of development for annual giving at Schreiner University. “Their longtime support of HCCF is a testament to their belief in our Hill Country students and their potential. We feel very fortunate to have them as a partner in education.”
Since the Hill Country College Fund began in 1977, it has provided more than $8 million in need-based tuition assistance to students from Kimble, Kerr, Gillespie, Kendall, Bandera, Real, and Edwards counties and helps more than 250 Hill Country Students annually. Hill Country College Fund grants provide an average of over $2,900 a year per recipient and one hundred percent of funds raised goes directly to student scholarships.
