Martha Lou Scott‘s leadership potential became apparent while she was still a Baylor undergraduate student. Five months before she earned her diploma, university administrators made sure Martha Lou would be sticking around campus after graduation, hiring her for a job in the Office of Women’s Residence Halls.
Now, more than forty-eight years later, multiple generations of Baylor students have benefitted from that one simple decision. Over nearly half a century, the leadership qualities that were first noticed as a student have led Martha Lou from the residence halls all the way to her current role as associate vice president for student life.
Along the way, she’s impacted thousands of students en route to their own leadership roles here at Baylor and beyond. She still hears from many of them, whether via personal correspondence or broad public messages - Words like “inspiration,” “mentor,” “role model,” “leader” and “angel” appear over and over again.
Now it is time for the Baylor Family to honor Martha Lou as she prepares to retire this June. Please consider making your best gift to honor Martha Lou in this effort to establish a scholarship endowment in her name.
