Baylor University Executive MBA Student Inducted Into the Texas Business Hall of Fame

Oct. 31, 2016

AUSTIN, Texas – Baylor University is proud to announce that Executive MBA student Steve Burrington is a 2016 scholarship recipient of the Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation. Mr. Burrington was awarded for the launch of Texas Hearing Clinics in San Marcus and Lakeway—clinics specializing in hearing and balance restoration.

"We are thrilled to be honored with this prestigious award," Burrington said. "The scholarship will be used to purchase an Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) system which will expand our capability to test patients' auditory function from ages of premature birth to adults more than 100 years old, as well as help diagnose root causes for hearing loss."

Celebrating 34 years of service, the Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation focuses awareness on the positive achievements made by outstanding business legends and honors their contributions to their community and their state. Mr. Burrington along with 35 other recipients of the non-restricted $15,000 scholarship was honored during the Annual Induction Dinner on Oct. 27 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Antonio.

"Steve's passion to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those suffering from hearing loss in Central Texas completely aligned to not only the vision of the Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation, but to the mission of Baylor University," said Stacy McCracken, Executive MBA director. "This scholarship was designed to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of Texas business entrepreneurs like Steve who also embody personal integrity and demonstrate excellent leadership."
