ETBU shows CARE for Craig Hall to honor the legacy of Dr. Robert E. “Jack” Craig

East Texas Baptist University intends to renovate Craig Hall for use by ETBU’s largest academic school, the Frank S. Groner School of Professional Studies, through the CARE (Commitment to Academic Resources for Excellence) for Craig Hall campaign. The facility is named in honor of Dr. Robert E. “Jack” Craig (’50), who led ETBU from 1986-1992 as the University’s tenth President. His commitment to providing students and faculty with quality academic facilities and the resources necessary to serve Christ with excellence was evident in his leadership as President.
