• Legacy family includes 8 grandchildren currently enrolled at Baylor

    Allen family

    When we talk about Baylor legacy families, we usually mean an alum whose child or children also attended Baylor. Sometimes the green and gold stretches to include a grandparent, uncle, aunt or cousin. But this — this is a legacy.

    Dr. A. Dale Allen, a longtime Hankamer School of Business professor, and his wife, Anita, sent four of their five children to Baylor: Lori Allen Taylor, BBA ’84; Krista Allen Meek, BSED ’86, MSED ’91; Kirk Allen, BBA ’87, MBA ’88; and Tanya Allen Holstead, BBA ’89. That’s a good start.

    Those four children have combined to give the Allens 16 grandchildren — including eight who are enrolled at Baylor right now. The first of those will graduate in December. Dr. and Mrs. Allen are pictured above with their eight current Baylor Bears: seniors Cameron Holstead, Cody Holstead and Jessica Taylor; juniors Rachael Brown and Grayson Meek; sophomores Caty Beth Holstead and Rachel Taylor; and freshman Kasie Meek.

    I imagine they’ll have quite a gathering at Family Weekend tomorrow and Saturday!

    Sic ’em, Baylor legacies!
