A Message from the President 

This initiative marks an exciting chapter in our institution’s history as we aim to create a symbol that will embody the values, purpose, and mission of our school on campus and within the larger Baptist Health College community.

We invite all creative minds across campus, our alumni network, the Baptist Health System, and the public to contribute ideas that reflect Baptist Health College. Whether it’s a drawing, digital design, or description of your concept, we want to see your vision of a mascot that represents our shared commitment to shape the health of Arkansans by educating and mentoring healthcare professionals with excellence and Christian compassion. 

I encourage  you to participate in this opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on our campus. Your creativity and passion will help shape a new symbol that future generations will rally around for decades to come!

For You. For Life. 

Dr. Joel Hicks
