Phyllis Whittington

Phyllis Whittington has joined the staff of Schreiner University’s Office of Advancement as director of development.

Whittington comes to Schreiner after 16 years with the American Cancer Society, where she most recently served as regional vice president of field operations for South Texas. She has also served as regional director for ACS, in Harlingen and as San Antonio metro executive director.

As director of development at Schreiner, Whittington will be the chief fund-raising officer, with oversight of all Schreiner fund-raising, including major gifts, foundation relations and government programs.

“Once I visited the campus of Schreiner University, experiencing first-hand its beauty, history and caring community of staff and faculty I knew this was not only where I wanted to establish a career but my life,” Whittington said. “Each and every interaction I have had on a daily basis throughout Schreiner and Kerrville has been most welcoming. With both of my own sons having graduated from Baylor and UT-Pan American in December of 2006, I know first-hand the value of the quality of education and supportive environment Schreiner University provides its students.”
