Outstanding alumni and teachers were honored at the Baylor School Headmaster’s Luncheon and Alumni Award Presentation on Saturday, Oct. 1, on the Baylor campus. The awards presentation was part of the school's Alumni Weekend, Sept. 30 to Oct. 2.

George P. Mann ’80 was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award, which recognizes notable achievement in the professional and civic lives of Baylor alumni. Twice named Alabama Governor’s Wildlife Conservationist of the Year, Mr. Mann founded the Mann Museum and Outdoors in Opelika, Ala., a hands-on museum dedicated to conservation through education. The Museum relocated in 2003 and is now the Mann Wildlife Learning Museum at the Montgomery Zoo.

Woodrow M. Henderson ’75 received the Distinguished Service Award. Mr. Henderson is called “Father of Planned Giving” at Baylor because of his leadership role in the establishment of this program at the school. Mr. Henderson heads the planned giving office of the UT system.

Two beloved and long-time faculty members who passed away this year, Lower School math teacher Catherine S. Bradford and Upper School English teacher Dr. Robert M. Lanza, were remembered with a Faculty Dedicated Service Award at the annual luncheon.

Baylor's Athletic Hall of Fame inducted tennis player Wesley Cash III ’75, who was undefeated in both singles and doubles play in his four years at Baylor, winning at least 120 matches. Mr. Cash is the tennis pro at the Manker Patten Tennis Club.

Also inducted was Marc Lyle ’80, an undefeated wrestler in his junior and senior years, who won three straight state championships. He was also named All-City linebacker in football and fell 15 points shy of All-American status as a diver. A designer for Dagger Kayaks, Mr. Lyle helped design Dagger’s RPM, to-date the best selling kayak in the world.
