Lubbock Women's Club Speaker Series

sponsored by the LWCHF and the Welborn-Payne Endowment

Ernestine Payne Welborn was an active Lubbock Women’s Club member and community volunteer. In 1999, she established the Welborn-Payne Endowment Speaker Series for our Club. Her goal was to present educational, historical and timely programs for the Lubbock community, by hosting nationally-known speakers at a dinner program for the Lubbock Women’s Club Historical Foundation, in our beautiful facilities. 


Since its inception, the Lubbock Women's Club Speaker Series has featured over twenty nationally-know speakers including poet laureates, photographers, authors, performers, political figures, heroes and heroines. 

The Payne Welborn

Endowment and the LWCHF will host Barbara Pierce Bush, co-founder and board chair of Global Health Corps, an organization that mobilizes young leaders to solve the world's most pressing health issues, for the luncheon program, "One Person Can Make a Difference: Confronting Today's Global Health Challenges,"  on Friday, April 30, 2021
