In Memory of Chad Northington
Chad was a loyal and passionate Baylor Bear. He loved his alma-mater and Sigma Chi brothers. When traveling to or through Waco, he never made the trip without stopping at the bear pit.

He will be missed by his Fall '82 Sigma Chi pledge class who have created this memorial on his behalf. Funds will support the Hankamer School of Business Excellence Fund, and his family will be notified of all donors who help to support this tribute.
