    Last week, Dr. Kathy Schwaig — a two-time Baylor graduate — was formally introduced as president of Kennesaw State University, joining an ever-growing number of Bears leading colleges and universities across the nation.

    Schwaig (BBA ’84, MBA ’86), a Central Texas native, was the third of three sisters to attend Baylor, earning both her business degree and MBA from Baylor before going on to earn a second master’s from Johns Hopkins and her doctorate at South Carolina. She joined KSU’s business school faculty in 2002, eventually advancing to serve as business school dean (2012-19) and then provost (2019-21) before being named president earlier this year.

    She joins a long list of Baylor Bears currently serving as top executives at colleges and universities nationwide (and even around the world):

    Sic ’em, Baylor presidents and chancellors!
