Livingstone, Ph.D., led the countdown to the relighting of Moody’s exterior in celebration of the library's 50th anniversary. The “Bring Back the Light” event tied in perfectly with Baylor’s newly launched campaign, “Where Lights Shine Bright,” which highlights the University’s commitment to its unique academic and Christian mission. “They had actually started this project before we launched the Lights Shine Bright campaign,” President Livingstone said. “And for the timing of being able to relight the library at its 50th anniversary while we’re also talking about the many, many ways at Baylor that our lights shine bright. It’s just a wonderful confluence of events that brought us all here tonight.”
