Martha and Greg Singleton have, for 30 years, met the challenges of balancing successful careers and raising a faith-filled family, and in the process, have gained some valuable insights.
Chosen as one of Texas’s Top Ten Teachers by the University of Texas last year, Martha was also named by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund and the Wall Street Journal as one of four Distinguished Newspaper Advisers in America in 2007. Since 1972, Martha has built some of the nation’s most highly acclaimed scholastic journalism programs.
Martha is a past recipient of the Edith Fox King Award for Outstanding Teaching and Service to Texas Journalism Education, and served as the president of the Texas Association of Journalism Educators. Martha was appointed to the Texas State Textbook Selection Committee, and was nominated to the San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame in the Education category. She is a noted speaker at journalism conferences and workshops across the country, including Columbia University’s annual scholastic journalism convention. She also serves on the Board of Judges for Columbia University’s scholastic press association.
Developing focus and strategies for companies across the country, Greg has structured a successful career in marketing and public relations. He has been a partner for the past 20 years in a consulting firm that has provided creative sales and marketing direction for numerous companies across the country. During his career, he has generated projects with such entities as ABC Sports, ESPN, Miss USA pageants, General Electric, Promise Keepers and the United States Football League.
A legacy of faith has been passed down through his family for generations, creating a sensitivity within him to the church and ministry. As a result, at various times during his life, Greg has been called upon to serve in music, youth and pastoral positions; as well as in consulting positions in various churches throughout Texas.
