Baylor Honors Drayton McLane By Renaming New Football Stadium After Him
Published January 2, 2014
FITTING HONOR: A WACO TRIBUNE-HERALD editorial states the "deserving honor" of naming the stadium after McLane goes beyond the fact he "gave the lead gift” for the project. The editorial: “This newspaper concurs with [the] regents’ decision, if only because of what Baylor -- and the newly dubbed McLane Stadium -- have meant and will continue to mean for all Waco and Central Texas.” McLane was “touting the idea of an on-campus stadium back when many of us dismissed the notion as appealing but still a pipe dream.” In many ways, the change “will help reshape perceptions by the broader public about our city -- and given some of our past, that’s only for the better” (WACO TRIBUNE-HERALD, 1/2).
