“The Kerrville Daily Times has done so much for our local community, and we are very appreciative of their longtime support of Hill Country College Fund and Schreiner University,” said Jennifer Farhoudi, associate director of development for annual giving at Schreiner University. “So many local students have been helped thanks to their faithful generosity.”
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 to student scholarships.
