Doug Baker Gives $5,000 to FOCUS Campaign
June 3, 2005
Doug Baker of Cushing has given $5,000 to the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Pharmacy Foundation as part of the university’s FOCUS fundraising campaign.
Baker is a 1984 graduate of SWOSU.
“SWOSU gave me a great education and an excellent opportunity to provide for my family,” Baker said. “You really don’t realize ‘the big picture’ when you’re just 18 to 22 years old. Thanks SWOSU for a great educational foundation to step out in the world and succeed.”
Baker is a Cushing High School graduate who is active in the Cushing community. He is a board member of the Cushing Educational Foundation and the Cushing Youth and Community Center. He is a deacon in the First Baptist Church. He enjoys fishing, coaching baseball and softball, farming and cattle.
He and his wife, Karen, have three children—Taylaura (who is SWOSU bound this fall), Kyle and Foster.
SWOSU's FOCUS campaign is focusing on four areas, including academic program enrichment, scholarships, wellness and athletic complexes, and deferred/planning giving. For additional information about the FOCUS campaign, call the SWOSU Foundation Office at (580) 774-3267.
