What did you do after leaving BHS?

Attended Columbus College. Enlisted in USAF August, 1964. Honorable discharge 1968. Finished BS degree in Biology, summer 1971. Taught school two years, completed MEd at Columbus College. In and out of the classroom teaching science and math for 13 years. Completed Specialist degree in science education, became certified in school administration and served as director of Regional Assessment Center (a state funded agency involved in the certification of beginning teachers). Became assistant principal of Hardaway high school and subsequently, dare I admit it, assistant principal of Columbus high school. My next assignment was principal of Muscogee County summer school (never again) before accepting a position with testing and research at the State Department of Education in Atlanta. Retired in 05 and have been enjoying life since then in Dunwoody, Georgia. Wife and I travel when possible and spoil the grandkids at every opportunity.

Favorite School Stories:

I don't remember having a bad day at Baker High School. I may have told myself I'd rather be some place else during those cold mornings in winter and hot days in the gym practicing basketball, but I'd give anything to hear the sound of steam clanking through the pipes on cold Baker mornings or even the smell of the locker room after practice. I haven't laughed as hard as I did when we aggravated Nell Jo Owens in study hall or been as excited as I was at the prospect of meeting someone at the sock hop since those wonderful days at Baker. If I ever find the magic lamp you may be certain that I would return to my alma mater and relive the time of my life.

Dream Vacation?

I had my dream vacation years ago on the sands of Panama City Beach.

Biggest Regret while at Baker?

Not realizing that it would never get any better than this.
