John H. Harris Society
Consecutive giving for ten years or more.
In 1868, Keystone Academy was founded by a group a visionaries who wanted the youth in their community to have access to an education and a promising future.
In order to construct the first building, they scouted the 21 acres of land and selected the highest point, cutting through briars to reach the rocky knoll. For the next two years, members of the community came together to help with the construction and bring the vision into reality, until the building, now known as Harris Hall was completed in 1870.
This society, named after John H. Harris, who was a founder, benefactor and first President of Keystone College appropriately reflects the steadfast commitment and the unwavering loyalty to our mission that our consecutive donors represent. We can never achieve alone, what we can together. The donations that you have made have served as the foundation for the future, and together you have built it brick, by brick.
The steadfast commitment of these donors is remarkable and much appreciated. This Society recognizes individuals and businesses who have given 10 consecutive fiscal years or more.
“We always want to be a part of Keystone, and Keystone will always be a part of us. This College just means that much to us.”
