CHRISTIAN COLLEGES and Universities
YORK, Neb. — A York College campaign, Beyond 125, raised $16.8 million for scholarships, campus improvements and programs, eclipsing the campaign’s goal of $10.7 million.
The campaign began in York’s 125th year. As the 128th year begins this fall, the college’s future has never been more secure, President Steve Eckman said. “By every measure, response to Beyond 125 exceeded expectations, and that means students have a better place to learn, grow and prepare for life,” Eckman said.
