SU Kicks Off Hill Country College Fund Campaign

HCCF Leadership 2013 Schreiner University started the campaign for this year’s Hill Country College Fund with the launch of the Advanced Gifts Division Thursday, Sept. 5 at the Schreiner Mansion Historic Site and Education Center in downtown Kerrville. The leadership of the campaign from left to right are: front row, Cindy Becker, University Division Leader, Harold Crocker, Campaign Chair and Brenda Chapman-Thompson, Community Gifts Leader; left to right in back row, Dr. David Smith, University Division Leader, Mike Graxiola, Business Gifts Leader and Peter Lewis, Advanced Gifts Leader.

Schreiner University will kick off the Hill Country College Fund campaign Wednesday, Sept. 18 with a noon luncheon on the Schreiner campus.  The public is invited to attend but reservations are required. Please call 830-792-7201 to make a reservation.

Harold Crocker, HCCF campaign chair, said this year’s goal of $600,000 is a lofty one.

“With continued community involvement and the generosity of Hill Country neighbors, we feel confident,” he said. Last year’s campaign brought in more than $604,000.

One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to grants for need-based students in Bandera, Edwards, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, and Real Counties.

“The Hill Country College Fund is so important to our students,” said L Beth Johnson, Schreiner University community development officer.

“Reaching our goal may be a challenge but we are as confident in this amazing group of volunteers, as we are in the generosity of our community.”

Schreiner continues to recruit a Committee of 100—a work force of 100 volunteers that will help with the campaign throughout the fall.
