BCD Stories

The support of 110 faculty and staff members of HSC-Baylor College of Dentistry helped make the 2007 State Employee Charitable Campaign a success on the HSC-BCD campus. In all, nearly $24,000 was pledged to various local, state and national nonprofit organizations.

The five-week campaign was headed by Liz Lester, assistant director of financial aid. Her committee of 15 faculty and staff members helped encourage HSC-BCD employees to consider donating to their favorite charities through the SECC.

Through an October bake sale and a month-long coin drive, the committee raised $435, which Dr. Ron Woody, professor and director of implant dentistry, designated for the American Cancer Society. Woody was the winner of a drawing of all faculty and staff who participated in the 2007 campaign.

Pleased that this year’s drive topped the success of the 2006 campaign, the committee attributes this year’s accomplishments to the generosity of HSC-BCD employees.
