2018 Hall Of Fame Honorees Announced

It is our great pleasure every year to honor Baylor alumni who have accomplished extraordinary achievements in their careers, in service, and in the unique way they have impacted the world. We call them the Hall of Fame Awards, and the Baylor Line Foundation has been giving out these awards for many decades. Today, we are thrilled to announce the 2018 Honorees. These individuals will be honored at the Hall of Fame Gala that will be held on January 20th at the Baylor Club, and we hope that you are able to join us in honoring them. Invitations will be sent out shortly, but if you would like more information on how to attend or buy a table for this special event, please call our office at 254.732.0393, or visit the ticket page here.
