Torchbearers Society Honored by Baylor Alumni Association

May 1, 2006

The Baylor Alumni Association honored the 2006 members of the Torchbearers Society during a dinner April 28 at the Hughes-Dillard Alumni Center for Torchbearer members and directors of the association.

The Torchbearers Society is a category of membership created in 2002 in response to life members who asked for a way to provide annual support of the alumni association. The society's name refers to the famous challenge to graduates by former Baylor President Samuel Palmer Brooks, "To you, I hand the torch."

Members of the Torchbearers Society are given the opportunity to pay tribute to up to 10 family, friends and former professors, who are recognized in the fall issue of the Baylor Line, the magazine of the Baylor Alumni Association. Tribute recipients who are not already members of the Baylor Alumni Association also receive a one-year membership.
