Kids got a head start on the year with at a back-to-school supplies giveaway held by the City of Baker School Board, the office of State Rep. Barbara W. Carpenter, D-Baton Rouge, and Southern University, Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, at the offices of the school board. Baker High football team members helped stuff the bags earlier, in a community service project, and vendors with booths and information, as well as snacks, were part of the day.
