Steve Hill

Gift Planning

Steve has been with the foundation since 2004 and is passionate about the power of higher education to positively affect lives. He finds reward in seeing kindness come full circle, working with people who were able to go to college through the kind action of someone else, go on to lead successful lives and want to give back in return. Steve earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and a Master of Arts in English from Colorado State University.
