Honor Turk and his legacy!

At the gala, we will launch The John H. “Turk” Thacher Education Fund, which will benefit participants at Baker Industries as well as college interns at Baker Industries who demonstrate financial need. For participants, funds will support both on-site and off-site educational classes, GED classes, and community college course work. The Fund will also support apprenticeship opportunities for qualified Baker participants, which will enable them to move on and earn a living wage.
