It’s no secret that the Baylor and Waco communities are home to many talented individuals. Great recognition oftentimes follows these great gifts, which can lead to the birth of a celebrity. However, not all accomplished people receive widespread acknowledgement. “In the Spotlight” is here to shed light on talented individuals from both communities, whether they are widely-known or hidden in plain sight.
The Lariat endeavored to uncover hidden “celebrities” of Baylor ad Waco as well as delve into the lives and motives of more obvious “celebrities.” We ask that you keep an open mind and loosen your definition of the word celebrity. In this issue, celebrity can apply to recognizable people, buildings, businesses, or the behind-the-scenes types that contributed to bigger, substantial projects.
