Paul Golliher has been and will always be a legend in the Trinity University community. Generations of students have learned from the “Old Man” in far more ways than just the classroom. Students, faculty and board members have all changed over the years, but Golliher has remained that common thread of consistency and commitment to the Health Care Administration program.
The Trinity University Health Care Administration Board, faculty, alumni and administration were honored to celebrate the contributions of Paul Golliher during Alumni Weekend. A scholarship in his name was fully endowed and will continue to support future generations of health care leaders. We, as a community, cannot begin to thank him enough for all that he has done and continues to do for this program.
Following Golliher’s example of consistency and commitment, the faculty, HCAD Alumni Association board, and Center for Health Care Leadership have launched an Annual Campaign. For many years, all three groups have worked tirelessly to engage with alumni, support students and continue to elevate the program to new heights. Our one collective challenge has been channeling this effort in a coordinated and consistent manner.
Finally, through the hard work of past HCADAA board member like Kevin Ormand ’98 and Mary Stefl, we have designed a streamlined approach to request financial support for the program. A joint committee will oversee the allocation of funds prioritizing highly impactful initiatives. Activities such as student trips to ACHE, case competition travel and alumni educational events will continue to elevate the reputation of Trinity University in the field of health care administration.
As alumni and supporters of the Health Care Administration program we are asking you to follow the lead of Golliher and demonstrate that consistency and commitment by donating annually. Certainly, we would like to receive large donations, but we are more focused on giving on a consistent basis. Setting up recurring payments is the easiest way to accomplish this goal and demonstrate the commitment to our program. We hope you will participate and continue to support a program that has meant so much to so many in the field of health care administration.
