After years of sharing her professional experience in public relations with students, Clark Baker asked Carol Perry to develop and teach a media design class. Perry describes the opportunity as her dream job because she could incorporate her training as an artist in the classroom while watching students succeed.

Many students struggled with the complex design software at the start of the semester. But, with Perry’s guidance, they created professional work for clients at the end of the semester. In fact, most of her students continue to use their design skills in their careers.

That is true for Caryle Thornton. Thornton uses the graphic design skills she gained in Perry’s class in Baylor’s Marketing and Communications. Thornton also started teaching Media Design for the department after Perry retired. So, it was fitting to ask Thornton to design the bear meant to recognize Perry’s years of dedication to her students and the department.

Perry is delighted to be remembered in a way she loves, and she could not be prouder that Thornton designed the bear.
