One of the commitment statements in the mission of Baptist College is “Fostering an atmosphere of respect for cultural diversity and the dignity of all persons.” Underlying this commitment statement is the belief that all persons are created in God’s image and worthy of love and respect. The way we treat each other and those we are privileged to serve speaks louder than any words I could write on paper. Racism has no place in our College, in our city or in our world.
Celebrating Our Grads With Our First Ever Drive-Thru Graduation & Virtual Commencement Ceremony
Like so many, our students set to graduate in April 2020 from the Baptist College of Health Sciences had to reimagine their graduation activities, at least for now. Faculty, staff and administration found a unique, socially-distant and responsible way to honor their spring graduates. They held a drive-thru graduation parade on April 17 where graduates picked up diplomas, college pins and a virtual graduation-in-a-box kit to celebrate at home with family and loved ones.
Introducing the College’s new mascot, the Blue Healers
In the 107-year history of the College, the school has never had an officially-recognized mascot. The College recently changed its colors to shades of blue to identify more with the Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation organization. Now with the new colors, comes a fun mascot.
