Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary will confer degrees upon 11 graduates during commencement on Saturday, Aug. 14, at the Ferrell Center.

Since its establishment in 1994, Truett Seminary has graduated 72 students, according to Dr. J. Bradley Creed, dean of the seminary.

This summer's class of Truett graduates includes the Spring 1999 outstanding student, Fred Hills of Hewitt.

Hills, who is originally from San Salvador, El Salvador, received his bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Baylor in 1979 and later completed his master of science degree in teleprocessing science from the University of Colorado. After retiring as a major in the U.S. Air Force in 1996, Hills returned to Baylor to pursue a master of divinity degree at Truett. He has maintained a 4.0 grade point average during his three years at Truett while serving as a bi-vocational pastor to three churches and as a graduate assistant. After graduation, Hills plans to teach computer classes at McLennan Community College while pursuing a church position.
