hcc 02 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (10/20/17) — Hopkinsville Community College Advancement Office has been recognized by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and was one of only 37 institutions in the country to win an award for overall improvement in fundraising.

HCC was also one of 25 recognized for the first time, college officials announced Thursday. Other first-time winners included The Citadel, University of Oregon, University of California Merced and Virginia Military Institute.

HCC accepted the award at the CASE Community College Advancement conference in Anaheim last week.

The selection is based on data submitted to the Council for Aid to Education's annual Voluntary Support of Education survey. Judges reviewed the fundraising data of 554 eligible institutions before naming the award winners. Of the 89 colleges and universities selected, 43 won an award for overall performance in fundraising, 37 won an award for overall improvement in fundraising while nine were recognized with both overall performance and overall improvement awards. The full list of winners is available on the CASE website.

"As raising private support becomes more critical for colleges, universities and independent schools, our 2017 honorees are setting the standard for fundraising excellence," said Brian Flahaven, CASE's senior director for advocacy. "We are particularly pleased that 25 institutions are being recognized for the first time," he noted.

HCC President Dr. Alissa Young offered her congratulations to college advancement staff Yvette Eastham, chief advancement officer; Rena Young, director of marketing & communication and administrative support Teresa Barnes. “This recognition by a national organization is a reflection of the continued support of HCC by the community. As we continue to serve our community, we are deeply aware of the sacrifices and gifts of our donors, and their tireless efforts to provide opportunity for our students,” Young concluded. Advancement Chief Yvette Eastham added, “This award is a tribute to the donors to HCC who are incredibly passionate about their community college, and it belongs to every person who has invested in this college.” Dr. Young quickly inserted, “We want to continue to have conversations with people to discover how we can partner and connect their passion to exciting things that are happening at HCC.”
