• Bricks celebrate family’s long Baylor Line

    Weldon and Nona HicksWandering Burleson Quad awhile back, it occurred to me that “That Good Old Baylor Line” was literally beneath my feet. Bricks engraved with the names of Baylor alumni and friends from across the decades cover the Sesquicentennial Walkway, often in long, long lines representing those big Baylor families — each their own “Baylor Line.”

    Weldon Hicks, class of 1948, and his wife, Nona, class of 1946, (pictured here) started one of those loooong lines back in the early ’90s. What started as a Baylor Line of two quickly grew. More than 20 bricks later, the last of their grandkids, Ben Carter, BBA ’09, just took his place on the Hicks’ Baylor Line — a place that has been ready for him since elementary school. Five generations of Hicks family Bears show their pride on the Walkway!

    If you’d like to honor your own Baylor clan in a similar fashion, bricks are still available; proceeds benefit current Baylor students. E-mail Susan_McCallister@baylor.edu for more information.

    Sic ’em, Hicks family and all you long lines of Baylor Bears!
