Hunt family pledges $5.5 million matching funds to DBU

DALLAS--Dallas Baptist University could receive up to $5.5 million--its largest such grant ever--if funds donated by the family of Ruth Ray Hunt are matched by other donors.

Representatives of the Communities Foundation of Texas and the Hunt family announced the gift in late November. It will designate $1 million in matching money to each of five priorities identified through a strategic planning process.

Previous money from the Hunt family enabled the university to develop a facilities master plan, which will serve as a blueprint for moving the university "from good to great" over the next 10 years, said DBU President Gary Cook.

At the news conference where the $5.5 million matching grant was announced, Ray Hunt and June Hunt (first and third from left) visit with Julie Turner, chairwoman of the DBU board, and Edgar Fjordbak, director of the Communities Foundation of Texas

DOWN HOME: Blessings erase wishes on list

My Christmas "wish list" probably drove my family nuts this year.

Around our house, we're big on drawing up lists of gift suggestions. You know--stuff we'd like to receive for Christmas or birthday.

Maybe we don't have enough imagination, but I like to think we do this because, if we're going to spend the money, we want to give something the recipient really wants.

Begin at the manger, but follow Jesus through his life

Do you ever wonder what became of the shepherds?

They experienced history's penultimate "Do you remember where you were when ... ?" moments. (You know about lesser memorable moments: Where were you when you heard World War II was over? Where were you when you learned President Kennedy had been assassinated? When Elvis died? When the space shuttle disintegrated over Texas?)

Even 2,000 years later, we know where those Hebrew shepherds were when they received the second-best news of eternity: "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night."
