Dear Ladies of The Guild,

As I assume the presidency of The Guild for the next two years, I would like to remember and compliment all Guild presidents who have come before me. It is a blessing and a privilege to follow in their path as The Guild moves into its 48th year.

The Guild serves as a light to HBU, which is a beacon for Christian higher education. Our mission to support the University has resulted in numerous scholarships for graduate students in Education and Theology, funding of special projects, and the establishment of The Guild Institute in Christian Family Studies. These endeavors have touched countless lives of students, University friends, and our community.

Since 1994, The Guild Ladies have raised in excess of $2 million for scholarships, which have enriched and blessed the lives of so many HBU graduate students. In 2022, nineteen annual and eight endowed scholarships were awarded; and, with the ongoing support and dedication of the Ladies of The Guild, this mission will continue.

On June 1st, I joined friends and donors for the celebration of the final phase of construction for The Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty. This building is modeled after the historic Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Those in attendance signed a replica of the Centennial Bell which now hangs in the cupola atop this landmark building. Opening this fall, it is an amazing addition to the HBU campus and an acknowledgement to the Morris Family as a founding father of HBU.

Thank You to my Officers and Co-Chairs for your commitment to The Guild and for your many talents, gifts and skills you share with us. We have fabulous Guild events planned for this year. All members are encouraged to join us for each and every occasion … and, please bring a friend.

“Having Joyful Hearts and Being Thankful Always” is our focus for this year as The Guild continues to be supporters, generous givers, doers of good works, and servants for the University.

Be Joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in ALL circumstances. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16

With Joy,

Jeanne Walker
