“This is such a wonderful gift that the Tivy High School classes of ’45 and ’46 have made to Hill Country College Fund. So many local students will benefit from their generosity,” said Jennifer Farhoudi, associate director of development for annual giving at Schreiner University. “I am very inspired by the fact that they have chosen to pass on the gift of education to Hill Country students.”

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.
