Statement on Baylor University’s New President

Houston Attorney John Eddie Williams, a member of the Baylor Class of ’76 and a 1978 Baylor Law School graduate, issued the following statement on behalf of Bears for Leadership Reform (BLR) in response to the announcement of Dr. Linda Livingstone to be the next president of the 170-year-old Baptist campus:

The Baylor Family congratulates Dr. Linda Livingstone on being named president of Baylor University. Baylor has a special place in our hearts. It is in desperate need of reform. We believe Dr. Livingstone can play an instrumental role in that process.

We welcome Dr. Livingstone back home to Baylor where she was a beloved teacher, and we look forward to working closely with her to ensure positive reforms are made so that the Baylor Family can heal and move forward.
