Lone Starr

The Eyes of More than Texas Are on Baylor’s New President

by Brad Green

Baylor University in Waco, Texas, is one of the most prominent and important institutions of Christian higher education in the United States. Its motto proclaims that it is Pro Ecclesia, pro Texana—“For the Church, for Texas.” Baylor has recently shown itself to be Pro Texana in electing a native Texan, Judge Kenneth Starr, to be its next president. Starr is currently Dean of the Pepperdine University School of Law, and famous for serving as independent counsel during what came to be known as the Whitewater investigation, which eventually led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
