The Emma Key Faithful Servant Award honors a student who exemplifies the selfless, Christ-like character of the late Emma Key, daughter of HBU Alumni Steven ’96 and Sherry ’95 Key. This year’s recipient is Victoria Simms. Victoria is a bold Christian and loves sharing her faith with others. In addition to serving as the chaplain on HBU’s dance team and participating in many other HBU organizations, she also serves the Houston community by volunteering with organizations such as The Source for Women. Victoria’s servant’s heart is also demonstrated by her mission work in Texas and beyond. Her goal is to use her HBU nursing degree to start a Mobilized Medial Missions team and lead volunteer teams all over the world, where they will provide holistic care to vulnerable population of orphans and introduce them to the Gospel. Victoria emanates a willing lifestyle that combines faith-filled good works with the effortless ability to share her testimony with everyone. She is indeed a deserving recipient of the Emma Key Faithful Servant Award.
