WBU Helped Shape Coach Lombard
CLASS OF 1975
Joe Lombard received his Bachelor of Business degree and later a secondary teaching degree from Wayland Baptist University in 1975. He later received a Master’s degree in Secondary Administration from West Texas State University.
“Wayland was a great school for me to attend. I always felt that I was surrounded by a great faculty and administration. The culture at Wayland is Christ-based and also gives a student the confidence to pursue his dreams.”
Lombard coached girls basketball in Nazareth, TX for seven years and then became head coach of the Canyon girls basketball team and Girls Athletic Coordinator. He’s coached more than 1200 girls and has 18 state titles under his belt as of 2016.
“I seem to focus on one year at a time with coaching. We are always striving to have a great team culture and to win a state championship.”
When asked if he had any final thoughts about his time at Wayland, Lombard had this to say.
“I am honored to have graduated from and lived the Wayland experience. We have so many great friends and memories from Wayland. There is no question that my relationship with the Lord developed because of Wayland.”
