2020 Sandra Baker/PRIDE Scholarship
Sandra Baker was a charter member of the Parent Resource Institute for Drug Education of Tuscaloosa and served on its board of directors for more than 30 years. Baker worked as administrative assistant and client services coordinator for the Tuscaloosa County Public Defender’s Office for 39 years. She also contributed to the formation of one of the first community service groups for youthful offenders, in which youth can clear their minor drug and alcohol charges by engaging in community service work.
Sadly, Sandra passed away in 2019 but her legacy lives on through the Sandra Baker/PRIDE Scholarship. The scholarship will award $1,000.00 to a high school senior in the West Alabama area that plans on continuing their education beyond high school.
