Hope came to Wayland in 2004 after a long-time career in public education.  She worked first in the area of student leadership, but joined the advancement team in 2008 as the Director of Development.  Hope earned her B.S. from the University of North Texas.

She enjoys all aspects of her position at Wayland, but indicates the real joy of her job comes from the donor relations.  She works with both donors and recipients of the endowed scholarships so she is keenly aware of the student gratitude and the donor blessings in the scholarship experience.  She also relishes the opportunity to work with women donors who participate in the Sally Society as well as the students who represent Wayland as President’s Ambassadors.

Hope was born in Augusta, Georgia but grew up in Plainview. Her education career began in Ft. Worth and was completed in her hometown. She has two grown sons and twin grandsons that provide double grandmother fun.
