Baylor's George W. Truett Theological Seminary, built in 2002, was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, a rare accomplishment for existing buildings.
Truett is the first previously-existing building on a Texas university campus to earn the certification and just the sixth building in the state to merit LEED certification in the existing-buildings category, according to USGBC communications manager Ashley Katz.
Dr. Terry York, Associate professor of Christian Ministry and Church Music at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, received the Baptist Church Music Conference's highest award, The W. Hines Sims Award.
