Fourteen Baylor seniors chosen last spring as Abshire Leadership Fellows enjoyed a virtual day of speakers, leadership activities, and presentations from Baylor alumni on politics, leadership, medicine, and finance on Monday.
Fellows would normally have embarked this summer on the David M. Abshire Civic Leadership trip, an eight-day experiential course of study on similar topics, however the trip was cancelled due to pandemic restrictions.
The program was created in partnership with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and in honor of the late Dr.
David Abshire ’44, who served as president and CEO of that organization.
