Rotary Club of Kerrville Presents Check to Hill Country College Fund
KERRVILLE, Texas – The Rotary Club of Kerrville recently presented Schreiner University’s Hill Country College Fund with a check for $1,000 to be placed in the Weaks Martin Rotary Scholarship Endowment. This endowment was established with Schreiner University by the Rotary Club to provide need-based tuition assistance grants for Hill Country students demonstrating academic worthiness. Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.
“Their donation to the Weaks Martin Rotary Scholarship Endowment honors long-time Rotary member Weaks Martin for whom education was very important. Their donation ensures that many Hill Country Schreiner students, who would otherwise be unable to attend college due to financial reasons, are able to pursue their dreams of a college education,” said Jennifer Farhoudi, the associate director of development for annual giving at Schreiner University.
