Joe Key Award Trippers Doubled for 2021
Previous recipients of the Joe Key Award enjoy the beauty of Acadia National Park.

Each year the Joe Key Award goes to rising Baylor seniors of admirable character whose selfless efforts might otherwise go unrecognized by the school or their peers. In honor of the late Joe Key (affectionately known by most as "Sarge"), who worked at Baylor from 1961 to 1988 as a military instructor and study hall supervisor, the award includes a seven-day trip of sea kayaking, hiking, and camping on the islands of Acadia National Park during the summer.

The recipients in 2020, members of the Class of 2021, had their trip canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions but that group of 12 students will get their full reward. The recent graduates will enjoy the missed opportunity this summer as they travel along with the winners for 2021, members of the Class of 2022.
