John Kratz’s first gift to Heidelberg came back in 1965, two years after his graduation, at a time he and his late wife, Beverly, were newly married and starting to raise a family. It was for $10. His next gift – also $10 – came 13 years later. Since then, though, John has been extremely insightful and generous with his financial support of his alma mater.

Alexa Hawk and Jeanna Fullom didn’t know each other until recently. Even so, they have a few things in common. They come from the same home town – Harrod, Ohio, near Lima – but went to different high schools. Come this fall, both will be students at Heidelberg.

Alexa (pictured at left) is entering her second year as a psychology and criminology double major. She’s very engaged on campus, working as an ambassador in the Admission Office last year. She also was a cheerleader.
