邦妮·贝克- 2024年先锋影响奖


邦妮贝克, 已故比尔·贝克的妻子, BG真人大游APP的创始校长将获得由北ark基金会颁发的2024年先锋影响力奖. 该奖项设立于2018年,旨在表彰为北达科他州和社区服务的个人.

She will be honored during the 基金会’s annual 广场之夜 dinner on Thursday, 4月18日, 2024, 下午6:30.m. 在签名银行社区室. The dinner will be preceded by a reception at 6:00 p.m. 在心房. 这个特别的活动是为了庆祝1974年成立的BG真人大游APP50周年. 

在收到她被选中的消息后, 邦妮说:“我很震惊, 谦卑和感激. 我们在新学院和整个第一员工家庭度过的美好时光如潮水般涌向我. The community college concept was new and exciting because it answered a need in our area.”

As the college celebrates its 50周年, Bonnie is overjoyed to have been a part of it. “NACC对我来说意味着整个世界. I got to be a part of my husband’s greatest joy and accomplishment beyond his family. 能在他身边真是太让人满足了. Being supportive of him in any way I could was what I enjoyed.”

邦妮指出,国会议员哈默施密特和社区的其他领导人是如何不知疲倦地通过了这项税收法案,从而使全国反歧视联盟得以成立. 随着bg真人游戏注册的发展, 它最终成为了另外两所大学的种子:全国大学橄榄球联盟的课程在山之家的一个教堂里举行,这就是后来的阿肯色州立大学山之家. A store front in Rogers became Northwest Arkansas 社区 College, 全州最大的两年制大学. “I have always been very proud of that accomplishment,” Bonnie says.

Dr. Baker had a knack for making friends wherever he went because of his love of his fellow man. Bonnie said his personal mantra was “Work hard. 爱每个人. 很高兴.当他能够来到教堂时,他在教堂的最后一句话是“爱每一个人,并确保他们知道这一点。.” 

邦妮有她自己的天赋. She is a wonderful host and cook who complimented Bill’s outgoing personality. 她对待每个人都像对待家人一样. For many years, Bonnie hosted a Christmas reception for the community. In the early years it was at her home in Harrison, AR. When the JPH Conference Center was built, the reception moved there. 邦妮开始烤饼干, candy and breads three months in advance to prepare for the popular event. She recalled with a laugh; “I got a big kick when my sister, Kattie, made peanut brittle every year. It was very thin, crispy and crunchy and it came together quickly. It took about ¼ of the time it took make to make my goodies. 每个人都喜欢她的花生糖! The next year as guests arrived, they were on the lookout for a particular treat. Bonnie thought to herself “I spent all these months making cookies, candy and bread - and some people came in the door asking, “花生糖在哪里??”  

Dr. 贝克于2000年退休. 对于邦妮, the highlight of Bill’s retirement party was a performance of The Snooze Brothers, 对布鲁斯兄弟的恶搞, 一部80年代的音乐动作喜剧电影. The Snooze Brothers consisted of two former Vice Presidents who later served as Interim Presidents, Dr. 吉姆·斯托克顿和唐·萨格. “它只是从其他所有东西中脱颖而出. 我愿意放弃一切,只想再看到那一幕! 

Bonnie现在很享受她的家人和朋友,她很高兴看到bg真人游戏注册随着所有新校区的增加而成长, 体育和俱乐部, and academic programs that allow students to obtain an 教育 close to home. 

Bill and Bonnie have three children: Billy Bert Baker, II, Yosef, and Julia 贝克Howry (Randy). 她有四个孙子:艾米丽·贝克, 威廉·伯特·贝克三世(凯利), 贝克Howry, Daniel Howry and two great grandchildren: Bryce & 贝克特Howry.
