Jim Heston

2020 Outstanding Staff Award Winner

Academic Consultant & Instructional Designer in the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work
7 Years of Service at Baylor

Jim’s efforts have immensely supported the social work faculty and staff as they adjusted to working to provide online education experiences to their students. His knowledge and expertise enriched the online programs both for students and faculty. Jim’s work has helped the social work faculty feel comfortable with online teaching. He makes himself available for his colleagues and anticipates their needs. While reading Jim’s nominations, I became aware that many see him as a kind and servant-hearted leader who is motivated by excellence in his work for his colleagues and collaborators. He is an example and constant reminder of how to be a good steward with what you are given.

One colleague said in their nomination, “Jim’s dependable support and positive contributions to Baylor and to the Garland School of Social Work are invaluable to the social work family.”

Thank you, Jim, for being an Outstanding staff member!
