We invite alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff, and the community to participate. We want to give our donors the opportunity to give where their passion lies. Our primary goal is participation; When a large group of people come together, no matter the size of their individual gifts, the cumulative results make an impact on the lives of our students and our college. We invite you to participate in the way you feel led to!

EVELYN HUBBARD MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship was established by Donna Haddock Forbes in the fall of 2003, in loving memory of her longtime music teacher.

Evelyn Plunkett Hubbard was born in Wortham, Texas. She began playing the piano at the age of four. In her early years of formal instruction, she complained of the necessity of “note-learning” and scales, but with maturity she realized the importance of education and with it the “note- learning” and theory.

Her dream of becoming a concert pianist changed to being a wife, mother, and teacher when she married D. H. Hubbard. She began private lessons in a studio in Crane, Texas. Upon moving to Phillips, Texas, in 1940, the private lessons continued in her home.

In 1942, Mrs. Hubbard began her teaching career. She taught for 20 years in the Phillips schools, moving from elementary to middle school and on to the Phillips High School Choral Director. Her sweepstakes-winning choirs became legendary. During the time at Phillips, she also earned her Masters in Music Education from West Texas State University.

In 1962, Mrs. Hubbard became the Director of the Music Department at Frank Phillips College. She established the Plainsmen Combo which consisted of the FPC choir and students who played musical instruments. These students practiced on their own time under the direction of “Mother Hubbard”. The Combo played for FPC basketball games and performed for surrounding schools and civic groups.

The Combo eventually became known as The FPC Medicine Show. This show promoted FPC to many new and eager students.

In 1970, she became the Chairman of the Division of Fine Arts at FPC. Evelyn had the ability to build programs and to promote the abundant talent at FPC. Her dreams were realized on-stage when it required two nights to accommodate the crowds that attended productions such as the annual Hootenanny.

Mrs. Hubbard and FPC graduate Paul Biggs created the Phil-Originals. This group became known internationally. They sang for such events as Governor John Connally’s programs and the Lions International Convention in Chicago. The sponsor of this scholarship, Donna Haddock Forbes, was a member of this group. Mrs. Hubbard was a member of the 20th Century Club, the Music Club, Tri-City Concert, Texas Congress of Parents and Teachers, and Alpha Chi.

She was the organist/pianist for the Phillips and Fairlanes Baptist Churches for 50 years. She was awarded The Altrusa International Community Services Award in 1973.

Evelyn’s teaching and motivation of students was outstanding, but her greatest attribute was her ability to understand, encourage, and love her students. Many of her students reached goals they had never dreamed of.

Mrs. Hubbard inspired her students to see their potential and to succeed.

Evelyn and D.H. were married for 69 years. They had one daughter, JoAnn Kuhrt, who, with her husband Harry, gave them four grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Wherever you direct your support, your gift will change the lives that change the world!

Annual fund gifts make an immediate impact, supporting the area of greatest need for our school or program each year that will make a vital difference in the lives of students and faculty.


How Can My Gifts Make a Difference?

Gifts of any size provide funds that will be spent on the most pressing needs of the area you're supporting. Frank Phillips College relies on the gifts of donors like you because endowment funding and tuition do not cover the entire cost of a FPC education, and endowment funds - while absolutely critical to the mission and success of Frank Phillips College - can only be spent based on the original donors' intent, and are often limited to specific areas. 

To learn more about how your gift will make an impact, please visit the Find Your Cause page and explore scholarships that you can designate your giving to.


Will 100% of my Gift Go to my Designated Area?

Yes. If you designate your gift, 100% of the funds you contribute will go to that area.


Is There a Minimum Donation Amount?

No, any donation offered to FPC will be tremendously valued and will help with the success and future ventures of the college as a whole.


Is it Safe to Make my Gift Online?

Yes. The information collected during the giving event is only used by FPC. It will not be sold or shared with any third-party organizations.


Is My Giving Day Contribution Tax-Deductible?

Yes. Your gift is entirely tax-deductible. You will receive an email confirmation that will serve as your receipt for tax purposes.


Can I Make My Gift by Mail or Phone?

You can make a contribution via mail by sending it to PO Box 5118, Borger, TX 79007. However, these funds cannot be designated to a specific area of giving.


Can I Make a Recurring Gift?

No, at this time we are only taking gifts for this fiscal year - if you'd like to set up a recurring gift please contact our head of College Advancement Jackie Brand at 806-457-4215.
