An ode to Baker Elementary School
We have lived across the street from Baker Elementary on Logan Boulevard since 1971 and have seen Baker renovated at least two times, now encompassing a block, from Ward Avenue to Landis Street.
Fortunately, our four grandchildren attended Baker. They then moved onto Roosevelt Junior High School and Altoona Area High School. They all attended Penn State. Our eldest grandson has been working for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. Our eldest granddaughter works for Penn State Altoona in the Development and Alumni Relations Office. Her twin brother has an associate’s degree in criminal justice and works at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center. Our youngest granddaughter is a registered nurse at UPMC Altoona, having graduated from Penn State Altoona’s nursing program.
With all of the problems now facing the Altoona Area School District, we would like to say we are Altoona Proud and Penn State Proud.
