Baylor Media Communications: Baylor Law Student, Army Veteran Honored with Pat Tillman Scholarship

Sept. 22, 2017
In recognition of his military service and for his mission to help orphaned and abandoned children, first-year Baylor Law School student Stephen Carl was named a 2017 Pat Tillman Foundation Scholar. Tillman Scholars are U.S. service members, veterans and military spouses chosen in recognition of their service, leadership and potential. Of more than 2,000 applicants, only 60 are named each year. Carl said he decided to pursue a law degree after he and his wife, Lindsey, adopted three children. “My heart is with these kids in the Texas child welfare system who don’t have a home, and I know there are a lot of things that can only be solved by lawyers,” he said. “A lot of the issues are legal issues, and so that put the little spark in me to go to law school, get a law degree and help people.” (Eric Eckert, assistant director of Media Communications, wrote this story.)
