2013 Installation of Officers
The Installation Coffee for the 2013-2014 Executive Board and Committee Chairs was held in the President’s Home on campus at HBU on May 10, 2013, hosted by HBU First Lady, Sue Sloan. Co-Chairs Sharon Corry and Colleen Fellows planned an elegant event with the help of their committee: Jane Ann Bickham, Peggy Boyd, Peggye Jane Gibson, Pam Lucas, Janet McGuire, Carolann Moore, Kay Schmidt, Beverly Terrell and Ruth Ann Williamson. The food was prepared by members of this committee and was done in true HBU Guild fashion!
HBU President, Dr. Robert Sloan, enjoyed visiting with the many members of the Guild and gave an update of the University’s progress to date. Dr. Sloan presented Guild President Debra Perich with a gift of appreciation for her service and leadership at the completion of her first year as president.
Peg Harman served as Installer to the Executive Board and led the Installation with a beautiful theme for service to Jesus Christ, the One whom we truly serve with our many talents (“we are many parts, but we are all one body”.) Peg installed President Debra Perich into her second year as President, presenting her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and installed each Board Member, reading to them the duties of their position from The Guild ByLaws. In keeping with her theme for service, President Debra Perich installed the Committee Chairs and presented each Board Member and Committee Chair with a monogrammed apron in HBU colors which reads: “Blessed to Serve – HBU Guild” and the chosen Scripture for this year:
“I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send …?’
and I said, ‘Here I am Lord; send me!’ ”
