Remembering Long-time Mayor and Southside Teacher Ray Baker

Bestowing Rose Petals



Few teachers have matched the record established by Ray Baker with the Fort Smith Public Schools. During his 46-year teaching career he was recognized as Arkansas Teacher of the Year in 1984, the nationally acclaimed Milken Award in 1995, and held the distinction of being on the original faculty at Southside High School when the campus opened in 1963. His American History teaching at Southside actually covered multiple generations as parents and their children experienced Ray’s intense patriotism and practical application of the democratic system of government.

When Ray entered public service as a City Director and later as Mayor, he was putting the lessons in government he taught to his students into practice. His legacy lies in the enduring lessons about love of country and public service which he taught to thousands of Fort Smith students.
