Welcome to The Baker Connection. My name is Sam Kenney and I am a senior at Baker University. This spring, I am an Intern at the Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce. The Baker Connection will be updated weekly to inform the Baldwin City community of Baker University events. Baker student-athletes, performers and artists spend countless hours perfecting their craft and are eager to display their skills to Baldwin City.
