HPU faculty member leads forensic science workshop at BHS

Smith at BHS for webBROWNWOOD – February 26, 2018 – Dr. Derek L. Smith, associate professor of chemistry at Howard Payne University, recently visited Brownwood High School to present a two-hour forensic science workshop to students in the pre-health services program.

The workshop was tailored to students who are considering careers in health science and technology. Dr. Smith was invited to provide demonstrations of how various techniques that involve biological materials may be applied to careers in forensic science.

Ann Tew serves as health science technology teacher at Brownwood High School. She invited Dr. Smith to instruct how the current studies of these pre-professional students may open the way to careers in alternative fields. Students learned the fundamentals of blood phenotyping and how identifying proteins on red blood cells can lead to very specific identification or exclusion of suspects and victims.

“Most of the students knew only of ABO and Rh factor typing, but there are actually thousands of proteins that can potentially be referenced to develop a very specific profile of individuals,” said Dr. Smith.

Additionally, students learned the basic principles of DNA analysis from known and suspect electrophoregrams.

“Within short order students were able to include or exclude individuals from paternal consideration and estimate the number of contributors to a mixed DNA profile,” said Dr. Smith. “These students are quick studies and quickly demonstrated a proficiency of techniques that I have only learned in recent years.”

Mrs. Tew, wife of HPU’s provost Dr. W. Mark Tew, said it was exciting to see the students process and understand the fundamentals of forensic science.

“We have several students who have expressed a sincere desire to pursue a career in this field of study and Dr. Smith’s presentation certainly encouraged them to continue their pursuit,” she said. “We are fortunate to have several professionals at Howard Payne University who are available for a variety of health career presentations. These faculty members greatly assist our students in planning their future careers.”

HPU hosts Currie-Strickland lectures, recognizes students in Christian ethics and theology

CS 2018 Award group 1BROWNWOOD – February 23, 2018 – Four Howard Payne University students were honored as Currie-Strickland Scholars in Christian Ethics and Theology at the university’s 11th annual Currie-Strickland Distinguished Lectures in Christian Ethics event earlier this month. Those honored include senior Emily Ball, business management and Bible double major from Midlothian; sophomore Kaitlyn Bush, Bible major from Brownwood; senior Garrett Ford, cross-cultural studies major from Monahans; and senior Julie Jo Yarbro, cross-cultural studies major from Odessa.

This lecture series is made possible through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Gary Elliston ’75 and was established to honor the life of Dr. David R. Currie ’75 and the memory of Phil Strickland. This year’s speaker for the lectures was Rev. Suzii Paynter, executive coordinator of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Rev. Paynter previously served as director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas’ Christian Life Commission, the organization to which the late Phil Strickland dedicated nearly 40 years of ministry. At the recent lecture, Rev. Paynter’s theme was “Women’s Leadership, Global Mission, and Course Correction.”

Each year, Currie-Strickland scholars are selected by HPU Christian studies faculty and staff based on an evaluation of achievement in their classes and on the ways they have excelled in their thinking in the fields of Christian ethics and theology. This year’s honorees each received a certificate of their accomplishment and three books: “Do Justice, Love Mercy,” by Phil Strickland; “Songs in the Desert,” by David Currie; and “Ethics,” by James William McClendon, Jr.

Dr. Derek Hatch, associate professor of Christian studies, presented the awards.

“We are very proud of these students and their accomplishments,” said Dr. Hatch. “We have the privilege of teaching many exceptional HPU students and these four show serious dedication to the practice to critical reflection within the life of the church.”

The four students plan to pursue ministry-related goals after graduation. Ball plans to attend Truett Seminary in Waco to pursue dual Master of Divinity/Master of Business Administration degrees. Bush said she feels led to pursue music ministry at this time. Ford plans to do mission work in central Asia and Yarbro currently serves as part of the youth ministry team at Brownwood’s Southside Baptist Church.

“It is our prayer that God will continue to encourage and guide these students in thought, word and deed as their vocations unfold in the future,” said Dr. Hatch.

HPU student leaders attend Christian Association of Student Leaders conference

HPU CASL GroupBROWNWOOD – February 23, 2018 – A group of Howard Payne University students attended the Christian Association of Student Leaders conference at Dallas Baptist University during the weekend of January 25-27.

Chartered by eight Baptist universities in Texas in 1998 and sponsored by the Congregational Leadership Team of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, CASL’s intention is to foster collaboration and idea sharing between student leaders from different universities. Through this, the goal of CASL is to create strong Christian leaders committed to the service of Christ.

Nineteen HPU students were selected by the Office of Student Life to serve as representatives from various aspects of campus life including Baptist Student Ministry, Chapel Worship Team, Greek Life, Intramurals, Jacket Journey, Residence Life, Student Activities Council and Student Government Association.

Representatives from six other Baptist universities joined HPU representatives at DBU for the conference.

“CASL reminds individual students that all of our schools have one common purpose of glorifying God and praising Him, helping us to stay focused in our organizations to achieve that one common goal,” said Emma Reed, a junior family studies and Guy D. Newman Honors Academy major from Kennedale.

Joining Reed as HPU representatives were Keith Baker II, sophomore art major from Houston; Brooklyn Britton, sophomore English and history major from Brownwood; Jayland Brown, sophomore music major from Temple; Titus Brown, senior management major from New Roads, Louisiana; Caleb Callaway, sophomore youth ministry major from Early; Jessica Catlett, senior social work and Guy D. Newman Honors Academy major from Alleyton; Devin Caraway, senior business administration major from Cisco; Karli Conrad, senior marketing major from Katy; Jaime Dodson, senior communication and psychology major from Cisco; Sawyer Fisher, junior business administration major from Bertram; Caleb Kostreva, junior global studies and Guy D. Newman Honors Academy major from Clifton, Colorado; Charles Lewis, sophomore marketing and Guy D. Newman Honors Academy major from Boerne; Jessica Meeks, junior family studies major from Bridgeport; Riley Morrison, senior marketing and engineering science major from Austin; Rachel Myers, junior education major from Buffalo Gap; Dani Puente, sophomore biochemistry and Guy D. Newman Honors Academy major from Waskom; Foga’a Solomona-Afoa, sophomore athletic training major from Fort Hood; and Haylee Williams, junior communication and practical theology major from Bellville.

The 2018 CASL conference featured speaker Marcus “Goodie” Goodloe, Ph.D., co-author of Habits: Six Steps to the Art of Influence. In addition, the conference offered student leaders the opportunity to meet with representatives from other schools, attend leadership workshops and collaborate in group sessions about service and improving campus life.

The encouragement offered by discussing problems and solutions with other students is very helpful, said several HPU student representatives.

“We do a lot of things well here at HPU and at CASL we learned things to bring back and apply in our organizations,” said Fisher.

Additionally, Baker commented that CASL made him grateful to be at HPU.

“We have wonderful resident directors and resident assistants here,” he said. “I’m happy to be here.”

Ultimately, the conference is a learning opportunity and chance to be encouraged for all the students who attend. HPU representatives have taken valuable lessons from the 2018 conference.

“It is encouraging to know that you share the struggles of people in similar positions,” said Reed, “but also that they have found solutions.”

The encouragement from other student leaders to continue striving to improve their respective campuses was appreciated by attendees of CASL.

“Being on the Student Activities Council, some events will work really well while others don’t,” said Solomona-Afoa. “CASL made me realize that it’s okay for things to not always go exactly as planned.”

In January 2019, HPU will host the CASL conference, an occasion for the university to show how it excels in fostering servant leadership and what makes the university unique.

“This is an exciting opportunity for HPU to be able to host CASL and a good opportunity for other students to see what a different campus looks like,” said Kostreva.

In anticipation of the 2019 conference, planning has already begun and HPU’s representatives are looking forward to hosting next year.

“We are very excited to be planning this conference and inviting our peers from across the state to our campus,” stated Reed. “We are in prayer that that we will glorify the Lord in this.”

Recent HPU graduate discusses missionary work in Uganda

Jaclyn Bonner with graduatesBROWNWOOD – February 16, 2018 – Jaclyn Bonner, a May 2017 Howard Payne University graduate, was back on campus recently to talk with students about her mission work in Uganda. Bonner delivered a presentation on the Ugandan culture to students in a sociology class taught by Lynn Humeniuk, associate professor of criminal justice and sociology and director of HPU’s criminal justice program.

Bonner spent more than three months in Kampala, Uganda, last fall, serving as a missionary through the Baptist General Convention of Texas’ Go Now Missions program. She worked with Refuge & Hope International, a faith-based organization that serves refugees who have fled to the area. The primary focus of the organization is to share the love of Christ with refugees and help equip them through English as a Second Language (ESL), General Equivalency Diploma (GED) and entrepreneurship courses. Bonner, who majored in communication studies and minored in sociology at HPU, was able to utilize what she learned in the classroom while assisting with marketing and communications, ESL teaching and tutoring.

“I believe it is important to have a missional mentality wherever I live,” she said. “However, this opportunity was particularly unique because it perfectly incorporated my calling, passion and skills. As a Christian, I am called to share Christ and make disciples. As an individual, my passion is helping marginalized people. As a recent communication studies graduate, I was able to use my skills to help make the operation run efficiently and equip refugees to succeed.”

Bonner explained to the HPU students that Uganda’s culture is much broader than she could adequately explain in the time allotted during class.

“We’re just looking at a part of a mosaic,” she said as she showed them photos of rural villages and cosmopolitan cities.

Bonner first became involved with missions through HPU’s Baptist Student Ministry and served in Brownwood, in New York City and with service projects like Beach Reach on South Padre Island.

“Each of these mission experiences were impactful and formative for me,” she said. “I learned more about spiritual discipline and the character of God. My exposure to local, state and national missions helped prepare me to serve internationally.”

While an HPU student, Bonner also had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in London and travel internationally with HPU’s Model United Nations team.

“These experiences exposed me to world events and issues, such as the refugee and migration crisis, that I have come to care about greatly,” she said. “Additionally, HPU’s Christian worldview has exposed me to ministry opportunities and encouraged me to pursue missions for this season of my life.”

HPU’s Dr. Celeste Church named accreditation liaison

Dr. Celeste Church 2.13.18 1BROWNWOOD – February 13, 2018 – Dr. Bill Ellis, Howard Payne University president, has appointed Dr. Celeste Church as the university’s accreditation liaison to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Dr. Church additionally serves the university as dean of institutional research and effectiveness and professor of music.

HPU has been accredited by the Commission on Colleges since 1948. The president of each member institution designates one person to be the organization’s official conduit for all correspondence with the Commission.

“Serving in her role as dean of institutional research and effectiveness, Dr. Church was a natural and obvious choice,” said Dr. W. Mark Tew, HPU’s provost and chief academic officer. “With her engagement in assisting all areas of the university in making improvements based upon assessment data, Dr. Church is already very knowledgeable of the accreditation process.”

The accreditation procedure includes the thorough examination of all aspects of university operation including administrative processes, academic programs, student life, library services and physical and financial resources.

Dr. Church assumes the role of accreditation liaison following the retirement of Dr. Robert Bicknell, who served in that position since 2000, at the close of the fall 2017 semester. She and Dr. Bicknell are preparing the university to receive its SACSCOC visiting committee in April.

Dr. Church joined HPU’s faculty in 2004 and holds the Master of Church Music degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from Texas Tech University. Her husband, Dr. Gregory Church, serves as professor of music at HPU.

“I look forward to stepping into this role and am thankful for Dr. Bicknell’s guidance and forethought,” she said.
