Petition to have Mr. Peter J. Baker 's name on the new Fine Arts Academy at Camden County High School in Kingsland, GA.
The Camden County School Board has agreed to name the new State of the Art Fine Arts Academy in honor of Mr. Peter J. Baker. This honor includes a plaque. We would like his name included in the signage on the outside of the building. Mr. Baker is a Camden Native with a long and illustrious educational career in Camden County. Mr. Baker was the unifying force that guided the integration of schools in Camden County. As the Principal of the integrated high school he led the school positively. He was fair, honest and sensitive to the needs of all students, parents and faculty. Mr. Baker is respected in the community, a man of character and integrity well deserving of this honor. Several educators and community leaders have been honored with schools and other facilities named in their honor. It is fitting that the building named in his honor bear his name.
