Photo Gallery: Charter Celebration Weekend 2013
This April, alumni returned home for class reunions and time-honored traditions like Robing Ceremony and Midnight March. 29 members of the Class of 1963 attended Charter Celebration Weekend to receive their Golden Diplomas. 21 members of the Class of 1953 attended their 60th reunion.
This year’s Parker Award was presented during the Alumni Lunch, Saturday, April 20, to the Koenig/Pipes Family, who have had 14 members of their family attend the university, starting with Merlyne Ponce, who was a student in the early 1920s, and most recently, Andy Pipes ’12. The Parker Award recognizes multi-member or multi-generation alumni families who have demonstrated loyalty, support, and commitment to the university. This award is named for former UMHB President and First Lady, Dr. Bobby and Marietta Parker, who lovingly taught the value of the Mary Hardin-Baylor family and encouraged alumni to send their sons and daughters to UMHB.
