While at St. Lawrence, Steve Hill ’72 (pictured here with his wife Ramona) was a history major, a Nordic combined skier, and active with ROTC. Upon graduating, he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, retiring in 1996 as a Lieutenant Colonel.
This year, in honor of his 45th Reunion and for The Campaign for Every Laurentian, Steve established the Stephen K. Hill ’72 St. Lawrence Fund Scholarship honoring Veterans through the St. Lawrence Fund Scholars Program, so he can help a student with financial need today.
“The men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces make sacrifices to clear the way for others,” Steve says. “The courses I took from Drs. Rossie and Culpepper gave me an appreciation for the lessons we can learn from history. I feel a debt to St. Lawrence and this is a way to pay down that debt.”
Steve donated by accelerating a portion of his planned gift, making a commitment to use some of his IRA’s required minimum distribution with the IRA charitable rollover once he is 70 ½ years of age.
Please consider joining Steve and making a tax-wise gift this year before June 30. Using appreciated stock or an IRA charitable rollover will minimize the tax impact on your charitable gift. In doing so, you can see the immediate impact of your philanthropy at St. Lawrence.
The St. Lawrence Fund is the Cornerstone of Laurentian Giving. It is a way every Laurentian can participate and make their gift count during this campaign.
