Mt. Pleasant Middle School of the Visual and Performing Arts started this petition to Maury County Board of Education

Softball coach Andre' Baker worked for many years to raise money so he could build a softball field for the Mt. Pleasant Middle School of the Visual and Performing Arts Lady Tigers.  He worked many concession stands during Saturday basketball leagues to raise the funds.  He also single-handedly reached out to local businesses for support in getting funds and supplies needed. 

Coach Baker raised the money and built his field on the MPMSVPA property with Maury County's approval.  There is a Board of Education rule that states that the person has to be retired 5 years before they can have something named after them.  Unfortunately, Coach Baker passed away earlier this year on April 15th.  This has been a tremendous loss to the Mt. Pleasant community, his family, and our Mt. Pleasant schools.  

We want to honor the legacy that Coach Andre' Baker built here in Mt. Pleasant, while also honoring the facility that he worked tirelessly to build.  By signing this petition, we agree that the MPMSVPA Softball Field should be named the Andre' Baker Softball Field.  We also agree and request that the Maury County School Board waive the 5-year rule for this request.

Thank you,

The MPMSVPA Andre' Baker Field Committee
