BAKER — Ninety Baker School graduates flipped their mortarboard tassels to the left Thursday night and processed into Gator history. A whole new life awaited many.

"I'm going to college at Northwest Florida State for dental hygiene," Caitlyn Cassidy said while posing for a photo with two of her classmates.

Haley Wagner, who delivered the Graduate's Address, will study nursing at Troy University. She said she will miss the closeness of the kindergarten-through-12th-grade school.

"Being at Baker, you can stay here your whole school career," Haley said. "I've been with some of these guys since kindergarten."

Teachers distributed hugs and words of congratulations as the students lined up on the west side of Doug Griffith Stadium prior to processing to their waiting seats.

"This is a great class," culinary arts teacher and sports coach Rusty Oglesby said. "We're such a small school I've taught some of these kids since sixth grade. You don't to do that in other schools."
