BUIOH Bids Farewell to Administrative Associate Becky Shulda

May 4, 2018


Becky Shulda retires from the Institute today, May 4, 2018. She and her husband, Larry, and their dog Rowdy and cat Sweet Pea are relocating to Kansas where they plan to find new places to get out on the dance floor and show off their considerable skills to their new neighbors. Becky will be deeply missed by her colleagues and friends at Baylor and in Waco. Students, staff, and faculty alike wish them the very best in their new adventure.

Becky came to work at Baylor University in 1989. She joined the staff of the Baylor Institute for Oral History as administrative associate ten years later in October of 1999, and since that time she has been a vital presence within the Institute. In her time as administrative associate, Becky has answered countless phone calls and hired scores of undergraduate workers with a joyful, deeply supportive, and infectiously humorous spirit. With grace and panache, she has befriended researchers and celebrated innumerable oral history topics and projects. Along with other contributions, she has managed the Institute budget, transcribed nearly 100 interviews, and processed raw materials in both compact-cassette tape and digital recording formats. She has overseen numerous changes in professional audio and computer technology and witnessed incredible expansion at the university. “Baylor has been very good to me,” she says, noting among her many accomplishments completing a degree in Museum Studies while working full time at Baylor.
