Following the Baylor Board of Regents’ spring meeting last week, four new Regents — all Baylor alumni — were announced as the next to join the Board in June:
- Shelley Giglio, BBA ’86, chief strategist and manager to the bands for sixstepsrecords and co-founder of Passion Conferences/Choice Ministries. She and her husband, Louie, began the ministry that would become Passion in Waco in 1985; after 10 years of working with Baylor students, the couple moved to Atlanta, where Passion Conferences were born.
- Larry P. Heard, BBA ’80, president and CEO of Transwestern Commercial Services, a real estate firm based in Houston. Heard has previously served on the Hankamer School of Business advisory board and the Baylor College of Medicine board of trustees.
- Kathy Wills Wright, BS ’85, MSEd ’88, of Arlington, Va., consultant in Washington, D.C. After holding several appointments in the George W. Bush Administration, Wright has served Baylor as a friend in Washington, as a member of President Ken Starr’s executive council, and as a Regent.
- Randolph L. (Randy) Pullin, BBA ’92, of Houston, chief financial officer with Stedman West Interests Inc. Elected by the Baptist General Convention of Texas, Pullin is a longtime Texas Baptist lay leader and former Buckner Foundation board director; he also served on the Presidential Search Advisory Committee that recommended Judge Starr to Baylor.
With these four added to the mix (pictured left to right above), nearly 90% of Baylor’s Regents — 25 out of 28 — are graduates of Baylor. Nobody understands the Baylor experience like those who have lived it, so I’m glad to see so many alumni — so many successful alumni — willing and ready to step in and serve in such ways.
Sic ’em, Baylor Regents!
