I attended Baker High School from 1956 thru 1963, from fifth grade until I graduated. I was an average student I was in the chorus club, FHA and other organizations. My most memorable Baker moment was the seventh grade, I had Mr. Komoris as my teacher. I really enjoyed his class. He was the first man teacher I had ever had in school.

After graduating from Baker High School, I attended secretarial school and became a secretary. In July, 1966 I married Ray Jackson and in 1971 we had a son, Frank Andrew who will be 27 in December of this year. He is still single but is getting married on October 3, 1998. My husband Ray is retired from civil service after 35 years, and yes, I am still working. I work presently at Wackenhut Security as a secretary since l985.

June, 1998
