Encouraging college community

For more than 70 years, the Judson community has set aside a week during the spring semester to focus on spiritual growth. This practice originated with the request of a Judson student. During the 1943-1944 academic year, junior Mary Essie Stephens asked Judson President Dr. John Riddle if it might be possible to bring special guests to campus to encourage the college community in their spiritual lives. Riddle agreed.

With the support of Judson’s faculty and staff, Stephens planned Judson’s first Religious Emphasis Week, which would become the annual event now known as Christian Emphasis Week. Stephens graduated from Judson in 1945 and in 1954 entered what would become a 30-year career as executive director of Alabama Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU).
