Jully 2008 marked the beginning of an ambitious initiative to raise $4 million in scholarship and endowment funds for HCC students. Thanks to the generosity of our community and the hard work and dedication of the HCC Educational Foundation board and the campaign council, that goal was met and exceeded as $4,301,580 was raised, at 108 percent of goal, at the conclusion of the campaign in June 2012. The community and business leaders serving as campaign council members included: co-chairs Del Karfonta of The Columbia Bank, and Kevin Kelehan of Carney, Kelehan, Bresler, Bennett & Scherr; Cheryl Guth, McGuire Woods LLP; Bill Howard, 1st Mariner Bank; Larry Letow, Convergence Technology Consulting; Chris Marasco, Howard Bank; Jane Padgett, M&T Bank; Eric Regelin, Granix, LLC; Elizabeth Rendon, LG-TEK; April Robbins, Re/Max Le Reve; Darryl Stokes, Baltimore Gas and Electric; and Richard Talkin, Talkin & Oh, LLP. Thanks also to HCC’s staff: campaign manager Tom Glaser, vice president of information technology; Linda Emmerich, executive associate to the president; Missy Mattey, director of development/executive director of the HCC Educational Foundation, and the entire development staff for all the work behind the scenes that made this a very successful campaign for students.
