Guild Institute in Christian Family Studies
The Fall season was packed with activities on the HBU campus that included The Guild. This year was no exception as The Guild Institute in Christian Family Studies joined HBU’s Office of Events to celebrate Founders Day and to honor HBU’s founder, Dr. Stewart Morris, on his 97th birthday on October 26, 2016. Dr. Morris, who continues to be actively involved and has been instrumental in helping the University evolve into the dynamic Christian University we see today, enjoyed Convocation speakers and longtime friends of the Morris family, Edd & Nina Hendee, as they shared rich moments about Texas history with students, faculty and friends. The Hendees then participated in an informative Q&A discussion with the audience. Following Convocation, the celebration continued with a luncheon in McNair Hall welcoming HBU faculty as guest of The Guild, highlighted by a dialogue with Dr. Sloan and the Morris family. Our own members Cyndi Jacobson and Pat Bertotti helped to make attendees feel welcomed.
Convocation, a weekly event on the HBU campus, is designedto give the students the opportunity to hear speakers who reinforce Christian values.
