In spring of 2010, Ryan and Susanah (Acheson) Baker ’04, started the Ryan Baker Foundation for kids and young adults. They most recently hosted an event for young men who have aged out of the foster care system and are no longer eligible for adoption. Twenty young men were taken shopping for suits at Men’s Wearhouse to dress them for interviews and prepare them for their future. Austin Collie and Martin Plowman were there along with several Bishop Chatard alumni and friends. Susanah said “They were the most polite group of young men I have been around, and despite their circumstances they had the most positive attitude on life.”
On Friday, June 28, the Ryan Baker Foundation will also be hosting a free football camp at BCHS. You can find more details on our main website at bishopchatard.org.
