A woman who gave of herself, of her time, and of her heart, Faye C. Goostree established the Women’s Symposium at Texas Wesleyan University in 1981. This annual symposium was only one example of her life-long commitment to Christian stewardship and civic responsibility. Faye Goostree led an exemplary life to all citizens, but especially to young women.
Her philosophy was simple but profound: “Everyone has something to give and a responsibility to develop it and share it with others.”
In response to Goostree’s commitment to social responsibility and collaborative sharing, the Faye C. Goostree Women’s Symposium Planning committee at Texas Wesleyan University plans an intellectually and culturally stimulating event focusing on aspects of life relating to women. All members of the greater Fort Worth community are invited and encouraged to participate.
Marjorie Herrera Lewis has had a lifelong passion for sports and writing that led her to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at the age of 27, where she was soon named a beat writer for the Dallas Cowboys. During her career with the Star-Telegram and The Dallas Morning News, Lewis covered the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, Wimbledon, the Davis Cup and many other professional teams and events.
Lewis also covered the Texas Wesleyan men’s basketball team during her time with the Star-Telegram and fondly remembers the hospitality she experienced on the historic East Fort Worth campus. With this endowment, Lewis ensures students at Texas Wesleyan will have a variety of opportunities to enhance their education in mass communications.
