Leadership Support

Dian Owen Stai and Judith Jones Matthews

The strength and leadership of women was an essential factor in holding people together and in helping them survive on the frontier. Judy Matthews and Dian Owen Stai have continued this tradition by using their resources and influence to improve the lives of people in many ways, including this project. Their commitment is a primary force that brought Frontier Texas! to life.
