HPU mourns loss of former dean

Dr. George Baker, former dean of Howard Payne University’s School of Music, passed away Sunday, July 22, after a lengthy illness.

He and his wife, Sara, who was an associate professor of music, retired from HPU in 1998. Along with Mrs. Baker, Dr. Baker served on the President’s Development Council at HPU.

A memorial service at HPU is being planned. Details will be released when arrangements are finalized.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the George and Sara Baker Music Endowed Scholarship Fund at HPU.

Please remember Dr. Baker’s family and friends in your prayers during this time.
