The Jean L. Wickett Lecture was established in 1982 by the Wickett family in memory of Mrs. Jean L. Wickett. A lifelong active United Methodist lay woman, Mrs. Wickett was a passionate advocate for the continued education of laity and clergy to enhance the vitality and mission of the church. The Jean L.
