Carrie Baker literally grew up on the Williston campus as a daughter of longtime faculty member Ellis Baker ’51. She earned 13 varsity letters, more than any other graduate in the school’s history to that point. A true team player, Carrie was known for her as- sists as much as for the points she tallied as a three-sport athlete in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. Carrie earned four letters playing on the varsity soccer team both on the field and in goal—a rare combination. She earned MVP honors as both a junior and senior. In basketball she earned MVP honors as well as captaining the team as a senior. She was selected to play in the New England prep all-star game as both a junior and senior. Carrie enjoyed a tremendous career playing lacrosse, earning five varsity letters, and was named MVP three times, and captain twice. As a senior, she broke the school’s single-season scoring record with 51 goals in 13 games. Carrie was awarded the Alumnae Bowl. She attended Middlebury College, where she played soccer and lacrosse for two years before a knee injury ended her athletic career. She transitioned to theater, and serves as Professor of Theater and Film and Associate Dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She, her husband Dragos, and their two children take advantage of the natural beauty in Alaska.
