Hill College recognized three “Pillars of the Community” recipients at Friday’s 11th-Annual Boots and Suits Gala at the Cleburne Conference Center.

Art Mann was named the “Pillar of the Community” for Hillsboro; Patsy Dumas for Burleson; and Cathy Marchel for Cleburne.

“We looked for individuals who are essential to the life of their communities,” Associate Director of Development. “This year’s three recipients were also recognized not only for their hard work, but also for their giving back to their communities.”

The Boots and Suits Gala is an annual event for Hill College in which proceeds go toward student scholarships as well as improvements to both the Hill County and Johnson County campuses and/or programs.
