The Charles D. Baker II Scholarship

The Charles D. Baker II Scholarship has been established by his grandson, Charles D. Baker IV, to honor the memory of his
grandfather who, despite experiencing significant hardship in his life, approached each day and each challenge in life with persistence,
optimism, and grace. Charles D. Baker II never had the opportunity to pursue higher education but served his country with distinction
and ensured that each of his children completed college studies.
This award will be made for the upcoming fall semester.
