Arleta was such a fine human being. She dedicated her life to the school and students. You could always go to her for advice and with your troubles. Smiling, cheerful and loving.
I graduated in 1964 from AHS. At the time I was not collge bound, so I did not interface with Ms. Baker as much as my friends. However, she was a delightful person who always had an open door policy for anyone wishing to speak to her.
My heartfelt condolences to her family. She left footprints on our hearts and was a kind caring person
I taught at Auburn High during many of the years when Arleta worked as a counselor there. When she and I found out that the weights room at the high school was open to students AND faculty after school, we decided to take advantage. We worked out together during one school year. We kept each other motivated to do so. I always enjoyed Arleta. She was a special person.
An Auburn High School legacy who will be remembered always.
I wish to express my condolences to the family of Mrs. Baker. I am forever grateful for the advice she gave me when I was an 18 year old genius who was about to make a terrible decision. Without her concern and support, I would not have graduated from high school. She will always hold a special place in the list of those who have made a positive difference in this man's life. RIP Mrs Baker.
