WACO, Texas – John Eddie Williams, president of Bears for Leadership Reform (BLR),

today announced that the organization has accepted the Baylor Line Foundation’s

invitation to participate in a town hall meeting on governance reform with Baylor

University Regents on Wednesday, Feb. 15, in Waco.


His statement accepting the Foundation’s invitation is as follows:

“We are pleased that the Baylor Line Foundation has organized this important town hall,

are honored to be included, and hope the Board of Regents will accept the Foundation’s

invitation to engage directly with the Baylor Family about the tragic sexual assault

scandal that has engulfed our university.


“Regents talking directly and publicly with the Baylor Family is long overdue and this

would be a good first step in beginning to restore trust in their leadership and their

handling of this crisis.


“The Baylor Family has many valid questions and concerns about transparency,

accountability and governance, and the town hall presents an excellent opportunity for

the Regents to address those questions and hear from alumni, students, and faculty.”
