Vallejo Times-Herald: Baker overcomes adversity, rises to top at Liberty High School

By Lanz Christian BaƱes/Times-Herald staff writer/

BENICIA — A year ago, being a valedictorian was the last thing on Paul Baker’s mind.

“When I first came here, I didn’t even know if I was going to graduate,” said Baker, 18, as he sat outside Liberty High School.

Baker not only graduated, but did so a quarter early and with the high grades that made him the continuation school’s top student.

Baker credits much of his success to Liberty, often seen as a

second-chance school where students who do not do well at Benicia High School can get a fresh start or, as in Baker’s case, accelerate their education.
