Dr. James and Laura Baker Memorial Scholarship
Dr. James Baker was a large man with an equally big perpetual smile.
He was a general practitioner with an office on the seventh floor of the Becker Building and privileges at the Community Hospital. For many years he was the local U.S. Public Health Service Officer, providing medical services for all the military and foreign ship crews in or visiting the area.
He and his wife had no children, but they valued education and established this scholarship through their estate. The recipient must be a graduate of a Grays Harbor High School and is preferred to be pursuing medical studies at an accredited University.
