Why I Give To HC
Sue Cross Savage ’57
“When I was a student from 1953 to 1957, our motto was ‘Enter to grow in wisdom, go forth to apply wisdom in service.’ That has given me a life purpose of stewardship that continues to strengthen my desire to take an active part in service to community, which includes remembering where I received this inspiration.
My husband, Jerry Savage, has been a great source of support of my love for Huntingdon and the friends made throughout the years because of the Huntingdon connection. In our 47 years of marriage, he has seen the positive results of my having been there, so that he has the same commitment that I do, in appreciation for what it has meant to me and, ultimately, to him as well.
Today faith, wisdom, and service continue to be the standard at Huntingdon, and Jerry and I are pleased to do what we can to help make it possible for others to have the same quality of education that I had at Huntingdon College beginning fifty-four years ago!”
Dorothy Kreis Golab ’67
Mrs. Dorothy (Dot) Kreis Golab, a member of Huntingdon’s Class of 1967, and her late husband, John, were inducted into the Huntingdon College Hall of Honor in 2002 when they established The Dorothy Kreis Golab Endowed Scholarship. In February 2007, Dot was inducted into The Order of The Countess of Huntingdon for her lifetime contributions to the College. She continues to make significant contributions each year that will grow this endowed scholarship and help to ensure that future generations can benefit from a Huntingdon College education.
Dot's love for Huntingdon and her commitment to education are evident in her philanthropic dedication to her alma mater. “Having taught school, I realized what a good education meant to me,” she says. “Johnny and I wanted to help students who were not able to afford the education I had received at Huntingdon. We started the scholarship to assist them with their hopes and ambitions.”
