Alumni Reunion - 2019 Recap

We are so appreciative for the alums and their guests that attended the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing (LHSON) Alumni Reunion on Saturday, April 06, 2019 at the new LHSON Academic Building. Together we celebrated the legacy of being a Baylor nurse and hosted a luncheon and program with keynote speaker, Dr. Lori Spies, Assistant Professor & Fulbright Scholar, Missions Coordinator, LHSON. We also appreciated alums who gave the invocation, Adrianne Duvall and benediction, Chris Felton.

The Alumni Reunion included many festivities throughout the day. We welcomed the Baylor Bookstore to the LHSON for the day for alums to enjoy browsing and stocking up on all their school spirit items. Plus, there was a display in lobby of scholarly accomplishments from the past academic year of faculty and student manuscript publications and poster presentations. The display was part of the 3rd annual LHSON Celebration of Scholarship Day hosted the day before and was held in conjunction with the Eta Gamma Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International.

We also honored the 50th, 40th and 30th anniversaries of the classes of 1969, 1979 and 1989 and congratulated the 10th year of our FastBacc® program. It was our privilege to acknowledge the following outstanding alums for their commitment and support of nursing.

Distinguished Alumni
Dr. Jobeth Pilcher

Distinguished Recent Graduates
Anna G. Yoo and Keith Hatfield

Friend of Nursing Award 
Dr. Kathy Tinius

We capped the day off with a set-up after the program in classroom 207 with two students, Nikhil Malhotra (L3) and Claire Flores (L2) who displayed some of the features of a patient simulator. They also shared an NBC news clip from last fall on our Simulation Center and faculty research.

Finally, as in years past, we invited alums to participate in an annual giving challenge for the 2019 Alumni Reunion. We are grateful for the generosity of our alums in making such a meaningful difference in the lives of our students as they Learn.Lead.Serve.®. If you would still like to contribute to the 2019 Alumni Reunion giving challenge please visit or call Janis Kovar at (214) 808-9802. Your investment will multiply for many years to come as our compassionate Baylor nurses strive to be the hands and feet of Christ for those who need care.

As it has for generations, LHSON is leading the way by holistically educating students in mind and spirit to fulfill their calling. Thank you again for all those who attended the Alumni Reunion.
