Charter Celebration

August 27, 2022 | Belton, Texas

On February 1, 1845, a charter started a small Baptist institution in Independence, Texas. Today, we celebrate the rich Heritage and Tradition of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. We invite you to join us for Charter Celebration on Saturday, August 27, 2022, where we will reflect on our past and celebrate the significant relationships formed during our days at Mary Hardin-Baylor.

We will celebrate the 50-year reunion of the Class of 1972 and, the 60-year reunion of the Class of 1962, reunions for Historical Phila, Royal Academia, and Campus Boys. If you would like to have space to connect, please contact the Alumni Engagement office at 254-295-4599.

Our Celebration Lunch will feature a special message from Beverly Ward Wood, Class of 1961, and the recognition and induction of the Class of 1972 into the Heritage Club. The cost of the lunch will be $20 per person and is free for our friends in the Class of 1972.
