Merry Christmas from the Hill

FocusAs this year draws to a close, we count the support of friends like you among our dearest blessings at Hannibal-LaGrange University.

For more than 150 years, HLG has been blessed with skilled and visionary leadership from our Board of Trustees, strong guidance from faculty and staff, wonderful students eager to learn and grow in a Christian environment, and friends and alumni such as you, supporting us along the way.

While each of us has faced challenges over the past few months and years, whether they be personal or professional, we have been deeply encouraged by the love, support, strength, and most of all, the prayers of others within our HLG family. We never cease to be amazed at the dedication shown by so many within “HLG Nation” through the years. God continues to pour out His blessings, and we are grateful for all He has bestowed upon us.

As our family at HLG celebrates the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, this Christmas season, our prayer is for His richest blessings to be shared with your family. On behalf of all of us at Hannibal-LaGrange University, may you have the Merriest of Christmases and a blessed New Year.
