The Houston Baylor Lawyer Network Reception took place on April 30. It was hosted by John Eddie Williams (JD '78) at Williams Kherkher. The attendees represented generations of Baylor Lawyers -- from those who graduated in 1961 to recent 2013 graduates. John Eddie Williams led the Baylor Lawyers in attendance in conversation about Practice Court and law school memories. Baylor Lawyers spanning 50 years of graduation share the common bond of being a Baylor Lawyer. At the reception, the Houston Baylor Lawyer Network honored Grant Cook (JD '61) of The Cook Law Firm as the Outstanding Houston Baylor Lawyer of the quarter. Cook has been a successful trial lawyer for four decades. Brandon Bundren (JD '05) shares these words about Cook: "During my time working with Grant (about three years), he not only taught me how to be a lawyer, he taught me how to be a Baylor Lawyer after leaving Waco. Grant is, and will always be, the best lawyer I have ever met. More importantly, Grant is a great person and an even better friend." Congratulations, Grant, you make us proud!
