Board Leadership

In 1959, Karl Hoblitzelle and his Foundation made a challenge gift to Hockaday of the several acres on which the campus is now situated. The gift was conditioned on the Trustees raising $1 million. This challenge was met. Hockaday’s buildings and athletic fields now cover approximately the western 60 acres of the donated land.
