WILL WORK WITH ALUMNI
Baylor University President Ken Starr has announced the appointment of Tommye Lou Davis, associate dean of the Honors College, associate professor of classics and Master Teacher, to his executive council as vice president for constituent engagement, effective at the start of the spring semester.
At the direction of Baylor Regents, the administration has created a strategic, comprehensive and effective university-based alumni relations effort to better engage and serve Baylor alumni worldwide. As Starr’s vice president for constituent engagement, Davis will help ensure the effective integration of these efforts, and provide oversight to the university’s other most important outreach efforts. Davis will have responsibility for the Baylor Network, The Parents League and the Office of Government Relations.
“I am immensely pleased to appoint Tommye Lou Davis to this new position as we continue our efforts to meaningfully connect with all members of the Baylor family,” Starr said. “Tommye Lou is a skilled communicator who, in her 35-year career at Baylor, has taught, mentored and befriended thousands of Baylor students who are now faithful and generously supportive alumni. She is a tireless advocate who, during the Bush library effort and elsewhere, has demonstrated a steadfast dedication to Baylor. We are fortunate to have as remarkably competent and extraordinarily talented an individual as Tommye Lou to step into this important position.”
“I am excited and humbled by this opportunity to serve Baylor University as a member of President Starr’s executive council,” Davis said. “As associate dean in the Honors College for the past three years, I have enjoyed reaching out to students, parents, friends and alumni in order to share and promote the outstanding work of my colleagues and our students. I am energized by this wonderful opportunity to expand those efforts to include representing Baylor to alumni worldwide. I am grateful to President Starr for his confidence in me, and I look forward to engaging alumni and friends around the globe who love Baylor and want to maintain a meaningful connection to our university.”
