Her Name Was Cindy Campbell Brown. She Died In 1995. And It’s Time You Knew Her Story.

Her name was Cindy Campbell Brown. Her age was 26. She was a Secret Service agent whose office was on the top floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. On April 19, 1995 at 9:02 a.m., Timothy McVeigh, 26, a U.S. Army veteran poisoned with anti-government hate, set off a truck bomb in front of the building where Cindy worked.  McVeigh had designed and built the bomb by hand along with his co-conspirator Terry Nichols. The blast sheared off the front of the 9-story, glass front federal building, reducing it to rubble.  The ensuing devastation killed 168 people, including Cindy.

The Baylor Experience: Anna Bryant

Anna Bryant, a senior at Baylor University and Hallsville native, is making the most of her time in Waco. After growing up with parents and family who attended Baylor as well, Anna’s dream was to experience it for herself – something she has certainly done since arriving on campus. From immersing herself heavily in both business studies within the university alongside her sorority sisterhood outside of class to cherishing special moments like Sing or football games during childhood visits – there’s no doubt that Anna’a time here will have been more than what she could’ve ever imagined before college began.
