Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children


The Gladys Smith Society

Tina Hyle and Tony KennedyTina Hyle

Since 2005, Tina Hyle has been a faithful volunteer to the annual Back-to-School Style Show for Baptist Children's Home, Oklahoma City and Boys Ranch Town, Edmond. She is instrumental in making the style show a success each year by serving on the style show steering committee and directing the volunteer greeters at the event. Tina and her husband, Tony, are longtime members of Southern Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

Tina not only serves the children's homes, but has been very involved for the past 6 years with Hope Pregnancy Center in south Oklahoma City. She reports to the center one day a week and stays as long as it takes, which could be several hours, to enter the client information from the week into the database. Having this information, at the fingertips of the Hope Pregnancy Center staff, is very valuable. Tina always exhibits joy wherever she serves; often bringing breakfast or sweets, smiles and encouragement to both the style show steering committee and Hope Pregnancy Center South.

Development Representative Shonda Flowers states, "Tina became a charter member of OBHC's Women of Compassion in 2014. She freely gives of her time and resources. She is a true example of a woman of compassion. Tina is dependable, accurate, and takes on her volunteer positions as if it were a paying job."

Membership in the Gladys Smith Society is the highest award given by OBHC to say "thank you" to people who make an outstanding effort on behalf of at-risk children in Oklahoma through the ministry of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children.
