Fundraising for the new Nick and Lou Martin University Center was ignited in February with a naming gift from longtime Texas Wesleyan supporters Nick HON ’03 and Lou HON ’03 Martin.
“We are honored to provide the leadership gift to get the fundraising campaign started for this important new facility at Texas Wesleyan,” Lou Martin said. “We were motivated to make this gift to encourage others close to Texas Wesleyan, and those who believe in its mission, to provide support to make this important center a reality.”
Lou, a member of the Texas Wesleyan Board of Trustees, is following in her family’s footsteps. James B. Baker, Lou’s grandfather, served on the Board of Trustees from 1895 to 1912. Lou’s father, Edward L. Baker, served on the Board of Trustees from 1945 to 1969. During his tenure, Texas Wesleyan earned accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
