President Delbert W. Baker recently completed another 26.2 mile marathon in the “Running for Scholarships” program. Baker completed the Swan Lake Marathon in Viborg, South Dakota (approximately 43 miles Southwest of Sioux Falls), on a course that was approximately 2/3 gravel and 1/3 pavement.
This makes the 35th state in Baker’s goal to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. Additionally, Oakwood First Lady Dr. Susan L. Baker, completed the Swan Lake Half Marathon (13.1 miles) in the same race. The Marathon raised $5,000 for student scholarships.
The Bakers returned to Huntsville joining in with others in working on the many summer projects on campus and preparing for the fall semester. The Bakers thank the Oakwood community for its support and prayers.
