2010-2011 Guild Fall Coffee

There was excitement in the air as we welcomed 28 new members to The Guild at the Fall Coffee. Between the truffles and the famous lemon sandwiches, the ladies of The Guild visited with friends as we kicked off our new Guild year. A special thanks goes to Carolyn Little for opening her beautiful home to welcome our organization. President Robert Sloan greeted our members with exciting news about Houston Baptist University and the publicity that HBU is receiving from several different publications. He pointed out that First Things magazine has scored HBU as #3 in the category of  “Schools on the Rise Filled with Excitement” and #11 as one of the “Best Seriously Protestant Schools.” Our own delightful Sue Sloan was there to greet us and assure us that God is in control of our destiny.

One of our annual scholarship recipients, Katie Alaniz, gave us a wonderful report of her scholarship adventure and the love that she has for teaching. Her young students are so excited that she also has homework, just like them, and that she can relate to them in this way. We are thrilled that our scholarship recipients are so talented and focused on what God can do in their lives through higher education.

Of course, the day would not have been so delightful if the gracious Fall Coffee Committee had not been hard at work cooking and organizing such a terrific event. Thanks goes to all!
