We can't let 100 years of history, excellence and innovation go by without celebrating!
We began Jan. 29 by hosting the Dr Pepper Hour, following up the fun in February with free blooms on Valentine's Day, and a visit and lecture from esteemed scholar and educator Dr. Maria Franquiz, an expert in bilingual education. On March 22 we hosted a Centennial Birthday Party on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the School of Education, and on April 5 we surprised our students with a "Coffee and Donuts" Pop Up. Later in April, we celebrated our seniors at a banquet at the Baylor stadium, where we presented Waco teacher Cathy Henson with the Centennial Outstanding Mentor Award. Two events followed in May: a "Study Break" Pop Up in the Moody Library just before finals, and a week later a Graduation Reception attended by seniors and their loved ones in the courtyard outside Marrs McLean Science.
Currently, we are working on a Centennial exhibit at the Mayborn Museum, and there's a "Meet and Greet" in the works for August as our students return to campus. In September, we plan to award the Centennial Outstanding Alumni and the Centennial Outstanding Young Alumni during a reception honoring our scholars and donors. Do you know someone deserving of either award? Nominate that SOE graduate here.
