Brook Hill seeks to fund educational projects with campaign


The initiative is called Boldly Brook Hill: A Campaign for Brook Hill School.

BULLARD, Texas — Brook Hill School in Bullard announced a $22.5 million capital campaign to fund several improvements, including a new fine arts center, chapel, play area for young students and a dyslexia center for students from sixth to final year.

Drew Durrett and Katy Kummerfeld, co-chairs of a volunteer-led campaign committee, said nearly $20 million had been pledged toward the campaign’s $22.5 million goal. The initiative is called Boldly Brook Hill: A Campaign for Brook Hill School.

The projects to be financed by the Boldly Brook Hill campaign is the new fine arts center and its chapel (including a 700-seat auditorium adjacent to its Ornelas room), a new playground for the lower school, eight lighted tennis courts, renovations to the library of lower school, an extension to Ornelas Hall, improvements to residential living facilities, improvements to high school science labs, improvements to campus security, athletic facilities, and campus infrastructure.

“It’s an exciting time to be part of Brook Hill School,” said school principal Rod Fletcher. “This campaign will invest millions of dollars in strengthening an already world-class fine arts program. But it will also invest in academic and athletic programs, security upgrades and more. Through the generosity of our families, the campaign will enhance the academic, artistic, athletic, and spiritual environment we provide for every student at Brook Hill.

The campaign also aims to add a comprehensive learning enrichment and dyslexia center for students in grades 6-12 to complement the current primary school curriculum. According to the school, this addition will allow students who learn differently to have access to the tools they need.

“This is more than Brook Hill has ever raised in its 25 year history and we are so proud to be a part of something so important,” said Katy Kummerfeld. “We love our Brook Hill family and cannot say enough good things about this special place. We made our gift in honor of our two daughters, but also in honor of what Brook Hill does for our children every day and for a bright future. they will appreciate because of this place.”
