The Johnson County Dual Credit (JCDC) Jumpstart Fund has received a $2,500 contribution from the Mustang Foundation.         

Launched in the summer of 2018, the JCDC Jumpstart Fund is a community-led scholarship of Hill College. Initiated by community leaders in Johnson County, the Jumpstart Fund aims to provide scholarships for high school students in Johnson County taking dual credit courses at Hill College. Today in Texas, it is possible for students from 9-12th grades to earn high school and college credit simultaneously by taking dual credit courses. This program provides high school students with the chance to “Jumpstart” their college career by taking college courses while still in high school. Once passed, these courses become transferable college credit while also satisfying the requirements of the student’s high school curriculum.

“On behalf of Hill College, I would like to thank Lowell Smith and the Mustang Foundation for this generous gift. Mr. Smith is a wonderful supporter of Hill College and education. He was instrumental in helping to bring Hill College to the Johnson County community, as well as the Mustang Foundation has been a long standing supporter of gifting scholarships to Johnson County students interested in Hill College technical education and nursing programs. This generous donation to the Jumpstart Program is just another example of the commitment and support of Mr. Smith and the Mustang Foundation’s support in educating students in Johnson County,” said Dr. Pam Boehm, Hill College president.

Jumpstart corporate giving levels include: founder, $10,000 and above; benefactor, $7,500 and above; sustainer, $2,500 and above; and patron, $1,000 and above.
