In its 165-year history, Baylor has seen its graduates become governors, doctors, leading researchers, captains of industry, award-winning artists, teachers, ministers ... The list goes on and on.
Each generation of alumni contributes to the success of Baylor, making an impact not only on the university as a whole but also on the generations of students who follow. Others come alongside the university through a shared sense of purpose to further the cause of Christ and to help Baylor equip its students for worldwide leadership and service.
In October, Baylor University will honor 10 members of the Baylor family for their contributions to the university and society as the 2010-11 Baylor Meritorious Achievement Awards are presented at Homecoming.
"We are extraordinarily blessed to count so many wonderful supporters as part of the Baylor family and Baylor Nation," says President Ken Starr. "We are grateful to all those who champion Baylor University for their love and support, and we are thrilled to recognize these individuals with the Baylor Meritorious Achievement Awards."
This year's list of award recipients includes nine Baylor graduates and one Truett Seminary Honorary Alumnus, ranging from the class of 1950 to a 2008 graduate.
