WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that the City of Baker School System received a $5 million grant from FEMA for improvements at Baker High School.  The school was damaged by flooding in 2016. 

“While our teachers and students are the heart of our schools, they need the right buildings and resources to teach and learn,” said Sen. Kennedy. “It’s been more than two years since Baker High School was flooded.  These repairs and improvements to the school are long overdue.”
