Of all the reputable schools I have been blessed to attend, none has had quite the far-reaching impact or long-lasting effect on me that Saker Baptist College has, and that is precisely why I firmly believe its story deserves to be accurately told and painstakingly archived, and its Alumnae celebrated, so that their worth is not lost on future generations, and the institution's FOUNDERS and STAFF over the years can be recognized and lauded for their SACRIFICE, albeit posthumously, for some.
Also, because my "Saker Experience" did not occur in a vacuum but was part of a "larger reality", I have gone on to include some information, events and material that may not be directly linked to Saker Baptist College, per se, but that have a distinct and undisputed bearing on the lives of its students - particularly those who attended the school in the first three decades of its existence. That would explain the existence of pages like:
-The YESTERYEAR page,
- The NOSTALGIA page and
- The ALMANAC pages.
