The BHS Student Council is proud and excited to announce that they tied for first place in the Make a Wish Competition for the 2019 State Student Council Convention. Baker, along with Poplar and Chinook, each donated $2,000 to the Make a Wish Foundation. A total of $1,189.33 was raised by the students grades 7-12 and the staff from Baker; the BHS Student Council added enough money raised from their various events to make it an even $2,000. Together, all the schools in Montana raised $14,430.14, which is enough to help fund at least two Make A Wish requests. Zach Craig is pictured proudly holding the plaque that announces Baker School’s outstanding contribution. This is just one more example of the truly giving and compassionate nature that is so common in the Baker community.
Also in Student Council news, Zach Craig, President of District VI Student Council, and Student Council Advisor Carole Bettenhausen are excited to announce that Baker will be the site of the 2020 District VI Spring Convention. While a date has not yet been set for this exciting convention, plans are already in progress to bring in a motivational speaker, provide motivational and fun workshops, serve lunch and welcome students and advisors from the area to our school.
The 2020 National Convention for Student Council will be held June 22-24 in Denver, CO. Baker High School students who are interested in going should clear their calendars and start planning for a fun, motivational, and awesome learning experience. Stay tuned for more updates!
