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