Even though she only spent four semesters at Wittenberg University, Lois Hagelberger Huebner never forgot her love of the university and its music school. Now, following her passing at age 107, Huebner has ensured that her love of music is passed on to others, thanks to a $2.6 million estate gift to Wittenberg.
Huebner’s generosity has translated into extraordinary scholarship opportunities, including up to full tuition, for qualified students interested in pursuing music at Wittenberg.
"Ms. Huebner experienced in her short time at Wittenberg what so many of our graduates have experienced – a student-centered music program that challenges as its inspires, meets students where they are at and then encourages them every step of the way toward a life of meaning and purpose," said Christopher Durrenberger, professor of music and department chair. "We are indebted to her and her family for their extreme generosity.”
