Shirley and Ray Rackley recently presented Schreiner University’s Hill Country College Fund with a check for $5,000 to help fund need-based tuition assistance grants for area Schreiner students.
“We are grateful for Shirley and Ray’s great generosity to Schreiner students,” said Dr. Tim Summerlin, president of Schreiner University. “Beyond that, we are excited whenever folks move into our Hill Country community and say, ‘Look, something good is going on over there at Schreiner; let’s be a part of it.’”
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.
