Alumni by Choice are faithful friends of Baylor University who are not traditional alumni, but who have been nominated by an alumnus for demonstrating a commitment to Baylor's mission. Baylor's Alumni by Choice program began in 1986, and over the past 35 years has welcomed more than 3,000 Alumni by Choice into the Baylor Family.
This year a new Baylor Alumni Award, the Alumni by Choice of the Year, will be presented.The inaugural recipient is none other than Baylor's very first Alumni by Choice honoree, Merrie Beckham!
Because of their love of the Alumni by Choice program, the Beckham Family recently committed to endow its continued success. The Merrie Beckham Alumni by Choice Endowed Fund supports the work of Baylor's Institute of Oral History to record and preserve the history of the Alumni by Choice tradition and its honorees.
By contributing to the Merrie Beckham Alumni by Choice Endowed Fund, your gift will sustain and grow the Alumni by Choice tradition, and honor the thousands of Baylor Alumni by Choice who have chosen to invest in and support the University's mission.
