Legacy Scholarship Fund

Legacy Scholarship Fund

Our graduates. Our legacy.

stephenHill Country Christian School was the recipient of a generous gift to establish an endowment to provide college scholarships to at least two graduates each year. The Legacy Scholarship Fund was created in memory of Stephen Kent Fritschle, who passed away suddenly in 2008. Steve was a highly respected engineer, community leader, philanthropist, and devoted husband to his wife, Melinda, dedicated father to daughter, Teresa, son, Cliff, and beloved grandfather of Hill Country students Stephen and Dannah. He was passionate about higher education and had a heart for those who worked hard to overcome difficult obstacles.

The vision of the Legacy Scholarship Fund is to provide financial assistance to students in their pursuit of higher education and in their desire to contribute to the advancement of the Gospel through those pursuits. It is the desire of the benefactors to grow the fund so as many graduates as possible can pursue their dreams of a college education. To join this effort and invest in Hill Country graduates, make a gift online today. This link will direct you to the online giving page of the non-profit organization Legacy Deo, the scholarship trustee. Please enter the name of the scholarship (Hill Country Christian School of Austin Legacy Scholarship Fund) and ministry account number (EN279) in the description field.

“The Legacy Scholarship has blessed me tremendously. In a family with four kids, I knew
paying for college would be a challenge. I am grateful for the award and the part it has played in
my college experience. It has allowed me to attend a four-year university and will also
help me to achieve my goal of becoming a teacher.”
Kendal Burleson, Class of 2015
