Debbie Johnson Mosier touched the lives of thousands of Hutchinson students in her 21 years of teaching elementary, middle school and high school. Now her legacy will reach thousands more through a gift of $2 million divided among Hutchinson Public Library, Boys and Girls Club and Hutchinson Community Foundation.
For Hutchinson Community Foundation, the $666,000 gift establishing the Debbie Johnson Mosier Fund for Hutchinson represents a major stride. “The Fund for Hutchinson is our community savings account,” said Aubrey Abbott Patterson, Hutchinson Community Foundation President. “Debbie saw that endowing her gift would make the greatest long-term impact and would allow us to address the ever-changing needs in our community. Debbie’s endowed gift moves us even closer to our 2017 goal of $3 million for the Fund for Hutchinson.”
“Debbie was very proud of growing up in Hutchinson,” said friends Patty Crews and Chery Lackey. “She has a big smile now not because of pride, but because she’s happy that she could do something for the community she loved.”
