Hankamer School of Business B.E.S.T Program


B.E.S.T is a yearlong academic leadership cohort comprised of the "leaders of leaders" within the Hankamer School of Business. The purpose of the program is to identify, select, and recruit -- and then educate, develop, and launch -- the world's future global Christian business leaders from Baylor University.


This year's B.E.S.T. class has several ambitious goals:

  • Impact the local Waco community through 7 unique pro-bono consulting projects
  • Travel to Nashville, Tennessee in Fall 2022 and network with professionals and faculty at Belmont University
  • Travel to Israel in Spring 2023
  • Create life-long relationships between all the talented Christian leaders in the 2022-2023 B.E.S.T. class



You are invited to get involved and give back to these multiplying young business leaders. For every B.E.S.T student developed and transformed through their unique journey, dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of future employees could be impacted.



Your financial partnership with the B.E.S.T. class is essential to the completion of the class’ goals in 2022-2023. Any contributions will be used to fund this year’s travel and development experiences. In particular, this Spring’s proposed trip to Israel presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There could be no better place to mold a generation of Christian business leaders than the Holy Land! However, this trip will be impossible if this financial goal is not reached. Please consider supporting these experiences which allow each member of this unique, handpicked cohort to discover their potential and be the inspiring leader they were created to be.


The 2022-2023 B.E.S.T. cohort is: Brooke Altman; Andrea Angulo; Tyler Ardiles; Ryan Beckler; Kelsey Boehme; Kyle Childress; John Mark Davis; Grace Ennis; Blake Fenn; Sarah French; Elinor Fuller; Grant Galyean; Luke Hankins; Avery Holmes; Katherine Jurkowski; Rachel Kelly; Isabel Lea; Haden Olfers; Jadie Petersen; Preston Knox Pittard; Grayson Ross; Olivia Schmidt; Carter Schuchardt; Luke Thomas; Luke Wagner; Ben Ward; Grace Whitaker; Meah Wilburn
