In honor of our Sesquicentennial and today's Scholarship Day of Giving, we would like to introduce you to our 150th donors. Don and Cecile Schoenheider are from Lake Forest, Illinois and are the parents of Jonathan Schoenheider '19, a freshman at Hope.
We just caught up with Don before boarding a flight to Michigan. When we shared with him that they were the 150th donors, he laughed and mentioned they were thinking of giving $150 in honor of Hope's anniversary, but together decided to give a little more.
The Schoenheiders give back to their local community as well. Don has been the mayor of the City of Lake Forest since being elected in 2013. As a family, they've had a tremendous Hope experience so far. Don shared that his son, Jonathan, chose Hope because of the quality of the people, campus environment and focus on faith formation. When they visited Hope, Jonathan knew "this is it!"
Thank you, Schoenheider family, for your support of Hope College students on this Scholarship Day of Giving.
