I have been living in Baker since I was in the first grade and I am now in twelfth grade at Baker High School. I love my community and the people who make it safe and nice. This past year we experienced a flood that affected not only me but some of my fellow classmates and family members too. This flood taught my community a lot about working together. People were going to others homes helping them fix what they can etc. My school was also flooded so my high school had to move to the middle school which was down the street from the high school. But we took a big lost this year with the flood coming through, together we are managing to make it through.

I love living in Baker, but I might be biased. I grew up here, it is what I know, and what I love. It isn't the fanciest, or the cleanest, but it has that nice small town community feel. People know one another, and for the most part they are all decent people.
