Carl and Janet Hill Family Fund

A legacy of faith and the love of music

Story of Fund

Fund carl and janet hill

Carl and Janet Hill were long term residents of Centre County.  Having lived here in the late 60?s to early 70's, they spent the next 20 years in other parts of Pennsylvania until moving back in 1994.   Carl is a retired Methodist pastor and served at several churches in the county.  Janet was a dedicated school teacher, teaching for 16 years in the Athens School District, 9 of those years commuting from State College after their move so she would not have to leave her students.  Janet also had a special talent for music and was a long time member of the State College Choral Society and the Nittany Highland Pipe Band.   Janet passed away in 2011 and Carl created this fund in her memory.
