Congratulations Lauren Baker

This coming Saturday Gary Baker will miss the show for a very good reason.  He and his family will celebrate the graduation from high school of his oldest child, Lauren, who just also happens to be our Teen Tech Advisor (we will have to search for a much more sophisticated title in the near future!  LOL)  Lauren has been a part of the Internet Advisor for most of he 13 years we have been on the air.  She started when she was 5 showing off the website she and her dad had created and since then has helped older computer users with things like texting and all the shorthand that youngsters use to communicate online and now on phones!  We who have known Lauren over these years share the pride that Gary and his family feel for the lovely young woman who Lauren has become through these years: an excellent student, an above average golfer and a beautiful young woman.

Congratulations Lauren and good luck at the U of M in the fall as follow in your father’s illustrious footsteps.
