Greetings from the Guild President

2014-2016 Guild President Jan Witham

My Dear Guild Members, 
As we celebrate the 41st Anniversary of The Guild, I am humbled and honored to serve as President for another year. Our mission is to support Dr. Sloan and Houston Baptist University, and our many dedicated Guild members are working tirelessly toward that end. In doing this, we have helped change the lives of numerous graduate students through our scholarship program.

Since its establishment in 1974, The Guild has contributed more than $1.7 million to graduate scholarships, special projects and The Guild Institute in Christian Family Studies. Recently we awarded 18 Annual Scholarships and four Endowed Scholarships to graduate students in Education and Theology … and we also initiated a new endowed scholarship to benefit doctoral students: The Guild Endowed Scholarship in Executive Educational Leadership. These accomplishments are a direct result of your generosity, dedication, hard work, and loyalty to the mission of The Guild.  Thank you, ladies!  
We are looking forward to a year of exciting events, and I encourage each of you to attend as many as you can. Please consider bringing a friend to be part of this great fellowship of Godly women. 

To God be the Glory, 
Jan Witham
