Jakelia Baker keeps getting good news and good for her! Jakelia carried a 4.1 GPA and has been accepted to over 50 colleges, including Penn State and Michigan, and it wasn't all academic either. Jakelia plays basketball, volleyball, golf, tennis and soccer at Laney. Beyond sports and academics, she also served on the National Honor Society, student council, math team and academic decathlon. It wasn't all fun and games though, "I couldn't hang out with my friends, or I would miss out on parties or other opportunities, and I would have challenges at school."
Join us in congratulating Jakelia Baker and her incredible accomplishments!
