BAA presents Retired Faculty Award

RFA 2010 attendeesThe 2010 Herbert H. Reynolds Retired Faculty and Administrators Award was presented to recipients on Saturday, May 8, at a luncheon held in the Cashion Building of the Hankamer School of Business.

The award is presented each spring at a luncheon co-sponsored by the alumni association and the Retired Faculty and Administrators Program. With the number of exceptional faculty and administrators Baylor produces, choosing a select few to honor can be an overwhelming task. But since 1981–when the Baylor Alumni Association recognized such legends as Martha Barkema, P.D. Brown, and Guy B. Harrison–the association has been recognizing retired members of the Baylor faculty and administration who have shown professional merit during their university service.

This year’s Retired Faculty Award recipients are Carolyn Backus, Buddy Gilchrest, and Stanley Wallace Campbell (posthumously accepted by Robbie Howell). Retired Administrators Award recipient: C. Thomas Newsom.
