Quinton Baker is a first generation college student. He was born in Spokane, Washington and has lived there his entire life. While growing up in a single parent home, he watched his mother make the decision to forego college in order to work and support him. Watching his mother work two jobs, while slowly climbing the economic ladder, reinforced the fact that if he wanted something in this world he would have to work to achieve it.
Quinton completed his first academic year at Eastern with a 3.53 GPA and made the Dean's List two out of three quarters. His major is Psychology, and he plans to attend graduate school to obtain a Ph.D. in Health Psychology and focus his career around alternative medicines. Outside of academia, Quinton is an active member of his community and will continue volunteering time and services for worthy causes. He has volunteered with groups and organizations such as Odyssey, Lincare, Goodwill, Red Cross, and Tapio Counseling Center, and looks forward to any public service opportunities in the future.
