The Geraldine Dickman Harbert Hills History Preservation fund

Mrs. Dickman was always one to help keep the history of Harbert Hills alive. She has many photos and some memorabilia. In addition there are items and photos around campus that can be part of telling the story of Harbert Hills from the early days.

We are estimating this project to cost about 40,000 dollars. Please contribute to this fund as you are able to help preserve the history of Harbert Hills. The building that will be restored/renovated/rebuilt and dedicated as a place for preserving history has served as a boys dorm in years gone by and is also affectionately known as the old chicken coop.

Please join us in this project to remember the impact of the pioneers who helped to establish Harbert Hills Academy.

Randall Dickman Memorial Scholarship Fund

Randy’s passion and desire was service for the young people and aged at Harbert Hills Academy. He served as a teacher starting in 1975 and then added the responsibility of Nursing Home administrator in the mid 80’s. In place of flowers his desire was to establish a scholarship fund for worthy students who desired to enter the health field. Donations can be made to the Randall Dickman Scholarship fund on the Harbert Hills Academy website.

Mike Manuel Mission Fund

The untimely death of Mike has left a void in the mission work at Harbert Hills. The family, spearheaded by his sister Marlynn (Manuel) Banta, has decided to establish a special fund for missions in memory of Mike. “The Magenlino (Mr. Mike) Manuel Missions Fund”. The objective is “To provide financial support for students and staff of Harbert Hills Academy who cannot afford to participate in school-approved mission trips.”

Greenhouse Additions

The effort to improve our agriculture program continues with the construction of 4 new greenhouses. With each greenhouse providing valuable growing area, there will be ample space to extend the season for growing more of what we eat.

In addition, there are many other benefits, such as expanding the opportunities for students and teachers to work together, following the counsel we have in Fundamentals of Education, where Ellen White addresses this topic: “The natural and the spiritual are to be combined in the studies of our schools. The operations of agriculture illustrate the Bible lessons” (FE 375.1).

Of course, there is also the benefit of knowing where our food is coming from and the processes used to produce it, and it teaches the principles of self-reliance.
Please keep this project and our efforts in your prayers and consider a gift to help complete this project. The goal is to raise $200,000 for this project.

Boy’s Dorm Remodel

The boy’s dorm lobby is in need of expansion to accommodate the increased enrollment. The roof on the boy’s dorm is also in dire need of replacement. The boys will be very thankful when this project is complete. Please consider a gift to this project. This project is estimated to cost $65,000.
