A Wise Investment

The idea of “investment” is generally to turn something into more, according to Baylor University’s chief investment officer, David Morehead, who is certainly an expert, after decades of senior-level experience at large financial institutions. Morehead and his wife, Sara, also consider “investment potential” when they choose targets for their charitable giving. That strategy — along with an appreciation for the value of education and educators — led the Moreheads to make an investment in Baylor School of Education’s MA in School Leadership program through scholarship donations.

Changing Futures

With our outreach, we've positively affected educators and students worldwide.

As the only Protestant Research 1 university in the world, Baylor University is the perfect place to continue this important work.

My team attended the Baylor Just Schools Academy. I wanted to thank you for providing this opportunity and conference each year. It was such a joy to see these women share their ideas and dreams. They are setting an example of what it means to lead and to be collaborative. I can't wait to see what the staff is able to accomplish through their leadership.
