Welcome Dr. Summers

Walton Presbyterian Theological Seminary has hired a new Vice-President of visioning. Dr. Mary Sumners has had a long professional career as an administrator for 30 years at the Jeremiah Foundation. The Jeremiah foundation allocates money to update the art work for Christian Education material throughout the United States.

This hire is a new position created by the seminary to “think outside the box.” Mary will hit the ground running with the seminary’s new capital campaign to build a Presbyterian Museum on campus for 20 million dollars. Mary is excited about this upcoming challenge. “When there are no longer Presbyterians in the United States my generation will be known as the one who preserved tradition and history. Brick, mortar and foundations are what people want to give to. We will be giving them plenty of opportunity for these in the upcoming years.”

This hire also fulfills Walton’s goal for having a 5 to 1 ratio of Vice-Presidents to students. So, welcome to the Presbytery!
