VIC HINES, PRESIDENT
While spending 33 years in Lubbock retail, with the former Hemphill-Wells department store and as General Manager of South Plains Mall, Vic served on the Advisory Board and the Board of Directors for Floyd Stumbo and Lynn Harms at The Children’s Home of Lubbock.
“Floyd offered me the opportunity to join him at the Children’s Home Foundation in 1999. I accepted that honor of working with him. My wife, Paula, joined the staff as well after retiring from LISD as an elementary teacher after 28 years, and she retired (again) from CHF in March 2018. We’ve been blessed with this work and seeing the Lord’s hand in growing the endowment to help carry on the Christian work of The Children’s Home.”
ERIC CREEL, VICE PRESIDENT OF PLANNED GIVING
Eric came to the Foundation in late 2017 from The Children’s Home of Lubbock. He initially served at The Home as a House Parent alongside his wife, Larinda. After adopting two children, Eric began work telling the story and raising funds for The Home as a Development Officer. “I’ve been involved in ministry for most of my life, and this work of advocating for and supporting wounded children is a natural extension of that. Meeting big-hearted people and helping them connect their financial resources to their passion for helping others is so rewarding!” Eric and his wife stay busy with their own five children.
KRISTAL WILSON, OFFICE MANAGER
Kristal began working with the Children’s Home Foundation March 26, 2018 as the Office Manager. “One of the main reasons I came to work here is because of the Christian values and ministry authentically demonstrated through each employee.” She previously worked at Wayland Baptist University for 10 years as an Academic Advisor/Evaluator for the Plainview and Lubbock campuses.
