Dr. Baker Pattillo served Stephen F. Austin State University for 55 years. In 2006, he began serving as president of the university. The SFA community was truly saddened by the loss of one of our own when he passed away Dec. 29, 2018. The Pattillo family truly bleeds purple and has supported the university in many ways. The SFA Early Childhood Lab wants to honor his memory with an object that reflects the dedicated, proud American and Lumberjack he was in a place special to his wife and family. A flagpole has been chosen to honor his legacy and will be placed in the front of the building. It will include a concrete base, a planter area and lights to shine bright on the flag. The cost of this project is $10,000. Please consider supporting this project by making your tax-deductible contribution to the ECHL Baker Pattillo Flagpole Project.
