WACO, Texas (June 29, 2015) – State Rep. Charles “Doc” Anderson, R-District 56, congratulated Baylor University President and Chancellor Ken Starr today on his fifth anniversary as the University’s leader with a special presentation.

Anderson presented Judge Starr with a Texas flag that flew over the State Capitol on June 1, 2015, in honor of the five-year milestone. The presentation took place Monday morning in the president’s office at Pat Neff Hall.

“Some folks are very accomplished in word, some folks very accomplished in deed, we are blessed, the whole Baylor Nation is blessed and our community is blessed to have someone who fits all categories – word, deed and policy. We really appreciate it,” Anderson said as he presented Judge Starr with the commemorative flag. “We look forward to many, many more.”

The certificate reads:

    The State of Texas House of Representatives
    This Certifies that the Texas Flag herewith presented to
    Judge Kenneth Starr
    By State Representative Charles “Doc” Anderson
    was flown at the Capitol of the Sovereign State of Texas
    In Honor of Your 5th Year at Baylor University
    In witness thereof and pursuant to the authority vested in me, I have hereunto set my hand and seal of office at Austin, Texas
    this the 1st day of June A.D., 2015.
    Charles “Doc” Anderson
    State Representative

Visibly humbled by the presentation, Judge Starr – a sixth-generation Texan – said he will “make sure this is appropriately displayed” in his office.

Judge Starr also surprised Anderson with a Baylor-inscribed crystal bowl on the occasion of his birthday (June 29).

“We are honored to welcome you on your birthday,” Judge Starr said as he thanked the representative for his dedicated service to the people of District 56, which includes Waco and the western half of McLennan County.
