2010-2011 Guild Christmas Luncheon
The Christmas Luncheon was truly an HBU family affair when the members and friends of The Guild enjoyed a delicious luncheon at the Hilton Houston Post Oak. Greeting our members was the newest publication on campus, written by our own Dr. Don Looser, An Act of Providence, a book celebrating 50 years of HBU history. As the voices of HBU’s Schola Cantorum, directed by Dr. John Yarrington, filled the room with the sounds of Christmas, we were reminded of the excellence in education that HBU affords its students. The luncheon guests were once again encouraged with Dr. Sloan’s Christmas message, an inspirational Christmas tradition that seals the true spirit of Christmas in our hearts. Guild President Sharon Corry presented Dr. Sloan with a gift of $50,000 for The Guild Family Institute endowment. Brian Cuthbert, our scholarship recipient, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity the scholarship has provided.
Anne Roper introduced First Lady Sue Sloan who presented us with a delightful story of her journey to HBU. How inspiring it was to hear how God led her and Dr. Sloan to be part of the history of HBU. As a final gift, Sharon Corry presented Sue with $75,000 toward the Sue Sloan Endowed Scholarship. We were truly blessed this Christmas as we witnessed the compassion, direction, and loving favor of our Savior Jesus. Co-Chairs Debra Perich and Katie Thompson, and their committees, put together a gorgeous luncheon that was truly a high spot for this holiday season.
