Statement from Southland Conference Commissioner Tom Burnett on the passing of SFA President Dr. Baker Pattillo

first_img“All of us in the Southland Conference are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of SFA President Dr. Baker Pattillo.  For those of us fortunate to have worked with and for him, he had a tremendous love for his family and SFA, and was always the greatest supporter of the Lumberjacks and Ladyjacks sports teams.  He was always a strong advocate for the Southland Conference, serving as the chair of the league’s Board of Directors, and also represented the league at the highest level of NCAA Division I governance on numerous occasions. He will be greatly missed, and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Janice, daughter Paige, his grandson Jackson, the extended Pattillo family, and everyone in the SFA and Nacogdoches community.”last_img
