TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) The Baylor Women of Central Texas met Saturday morning for the 23rd Annual Baylor Women's Brunch at the Wildflower Country Club in Temple.

Proceeds from tickets to the event and the silent auction went towards raising funds for the Central Texas Endowed Scholarship awarded to students in this area.

Baylor women were also honored who exemplify the Baylor spirit.

Joycelyn Miller was honored as the Distinguished Baylor Woman for 2017. Julie Mahler was honored with the Baylor Women of Excellence Award for her work with students, parents and the alumni in this area.

"It's our passion to let people know how wonderful Baylor is and to enable some people who might not be able to go to Baylor through the scholarship fund,” Miller said.

According to Miller, scholarship funds are currently up to about $140,000.
