Scholarship Donation

Hilbert alumna Cindy Kazukiewicz Gronachan ’77, together with her Class of 1974 Lakeshore Central School classmates, organized a benefit in memory of former Lakeshore School Superintendent George Johengen.  Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Johengen Family Scholarship Fund at Hilbert.  Mr. Johengen was a former Hilbert Board of Trustees member, and a long time support of the college. 

As a recipient of the scholarship during her time at Hilbert, Cindy wanted to give current students the same opportunity she had. The total donations were over $3,000 and Cindy visited Hilbert to present the check to Hilbert President Dr. Michael Brophy.  Thank you to Cindy and your LCS Class of ’74 classmates!

Alum Bill Haas Represents Team USA

This past July, Hilbert alumnus Bill Haas ’08 represented Team USA in the International Triathlon Union’s Long Course World Triathlon Championships held in Fyn, Denmark. The event, which took Haas just over 8 hours to complete, included a 3 km swim (1.9 miles), 121.5 km bike (75.5 miles), and a 30 km run (18.7 miles) done in sequence.

 

Haas qualified for Team USA at the Long Distance Triathlon National Championships in Miami last November. Bill’s mother Karen, wife Bryana, and three children (Levi 7, Hannah 5, and Aliza 5) worked almost as hard cheering for 8 hours as he swam, biked, and ran. Haas’ family celebrated with a two week European vacation and, of course, a trip to Disneyland.

 

Congratulations Bill!
