A man of many interests, Baker currently plans to major in human biology, and can’t wait to start exploring the other programs, courses, and opportunities that IU has to offer. His diverse interests served him well last year as he led multiple teams to state championships in Academic Super Bowl. Offered a trip in a time machine, he would have a difficult time deciding which time period to travel to: the construction of the Pyramids, the fall of the Spanish Armada, American independence, and the Civil Rights movement are just some of the possibilities he would consider. Baker likes to cook pizza, cookies, brownies, and just about everything else. He looks forward to settling into IU’s beautiful campus this fall, meeting many friendly people, and pursuing the numerous and intellectually stimulating academic options available to him. He is the seventh Scholar from Penn High School.

Baker will hold the City Securities Corporation scholarship.
