Baker High School has established a site on campus for the recognition of alumni who have served in the military.
The Baker Wall of Honor is located just inside the front door on the top level of the school. It currently includes over 200 names of alumni who have served or are currently serving in the military.
The wall was unveiled last week in a ceremony with several honorees and families of honorees in attendance.
“Those we honor here today, all the men and women on that wall, and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, they did that for us on behalf of a grateful nation,” LTC Frank Barrow, MCPSS Director of Army Instruction said in the keynote address. “The sacrifices made by those help make us a better people and a better nation. We’re forever indebted to them and must not, will not, shall not forget that they helped pave teh way for a more free, a more just society. For that, we must be eternally grateful.”
The school is continuing to seek other alumni who have served to add to the wall. If you know of someone they may have missed, please contact Leslie Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The creation of the wall was spearheaded by Baker Assistant Principal Joe Connick.
“It’s a great day for Baker High School and it’s a great day for Mobile County Public Schools to kind of give back to those guys who are serving our country throughout the world.”
