Photo exhibit, silent auction to raise scholarship money at Schreiner  

“Parts of the Whole II,” an exhibition featuring photos taken by Schreiner University students, faculty and staff, will open Tuesday, Feb. 5, on the mezzanine of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the Schreiner campus. There will be an opening reception at 7 p.m., which, along with the exhibit, is open to the public.

The Hill Country Camera Club selected the 60 framed and matted photos in the exhibit from more than 130 submissions. All exhibit photos will be available for sale via a silent auction that will begin at the reception. Proceeds will go towards the Parts of the Whole scholarship, according to Dr. Lydia Kualapai, who established the study abroad scholarship with funds she received for the 2006 Elmore Whitehurst Award for Creative Teaching.

“This is a real community effort,” Kualapai said, “and not just the Schreiner community, but the Kerrville community as well, with the help of the Hill Country Camera Club and several friends of Schreiner who have made donations to underwrite the costs of the exhibit and reception.”

Last year’s photo exhibition raised $2,000, and Kualapai hopes this year will be at least as successful.

“We want to raise at least $2,000 to keep the scholarship funded,” Dr. Kualapai said. “We hope to make this fundraiser an annual event.”
