Kerrville Resident Wins Live Talent Competition During HCCF Telethon
Corey Weaver was the winner of “The Hill Country’s Got Talent” competition held Sept. 17 during the Hill Country College Fund telethon.
Weaver’s vocal performance was chosen as the best by a panel of judges and audience vote. He was awarded a cash prize of $500.
The telethon, hosted by KVHC Channel 15, raised more than $6,000 for the Hill Country College Fund. To date more than $70,000 has been raised to fund scholarships for students from Kerr and the surrounding counties who attend Schreiner University.
“We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to KVHC for sponsoring this telethon, and to all of the people who donated to the Hill Country College Fund,” said Mignonne Frantzen, director of development at Schreiner.
The Hill Country College Fund began in 1977 and since then has awarded over $8 million to students from Kerr and surrounding counties.
If you are interested in volunteering or giving to HCCF, please contact Jennifer Farhoudi, Schreiner University’s associate director of development for annual giving, at 830-792-7208 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
