26th Year of the Baldwin Baccalaureate for Baldwin High 2018 Graduates, Family, and Friends

PRESS RELEASE by Jay Coffman

Baldwin City -- This will be the 26th year a baccalaureate will be provided by the Baldwin Baccalaureate Committee for the graduating class of Baldwin High School. The occasion provides an exciting and inspiring view of their future from a non-denominational Christian perspective and it is one more time the class could be together before the end of their secondary education career.
This year’s Baccalaureate will be held on Wednesday, May 9th at 7:30 pm in the New Life Assembly of God Church at 5th and Baker Street, Baldwin City. The message will be given by Pastor Tom Greenwald, Youth Minister at Community Covenant Church in Lenexa.
The public is invited to join the graduates and their relatives for this event. A reception will follow in the fellowship hall with cookies and punch provided.
The first baccalaureate in 1993 was begun by Doris Miller, then editor of the Baldwin Ledger, and Jay Coffman, BHS class of 1986. Mr. Coffman has chaired the committee every year since. For many years, the event was held in USD 348 facilities. Scheduling complications in recent years and the inception of rental costs for the Performing Arts Center this year, forced the event to be moved. Pastor Mark Halford and the congregation of the New Life Assembly of God church graciously offered their facility.
Free will donations for future events can be given at the door, to committee members, or to the Baccalaureate Fund at the Baldwin State Bank.
