October 1, 2015

Baylor alumni around the world are the pride of their alma mater. They represent the commitment to excellence, service and faith that has distinguished Baylor University in American higher education for 170 years. Baylor's alumni awards, coordinated through the work of our Constituent Engagement Division, led by Vice President Tommye Lou Davis, begin with a solicitation of recommendations from across Baylor Nation and result in the recognition of alumni who achieve success in a manner consistent with the Baylor mission. Following are the recipients for 2015-16. Read more about these outstanding honorees at baylor.edu/alumni/awards and make plans to make a nomination for next year's awards.
