LCO University Recognizes the Passing of Long-Time Instructor
LCO Ojibwe University Facebook Post
Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe University recognizes and honors the passing of retired instructor Larry Baker, who began his journey Saturday, January 28, 2023.
After Larry retired from the US Forest Service, he moved to the LCO/Hayward area and accepted a position as instructor at what was then known as the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College where he taught Natural Resource classes for 18 years. Larry was an engaged member of the faculty who supported the campus beyond his classroom. One of the things he was known for doing was an annual corn boil in the fall after the start of classes. He would buy all the corn and invite members of the university to help prepare the corn for cooking in a large cast iron kettle over a fire outside. Inviting others to bring a dish, this turned in to a huge meal for us and generated an opportunity for building community on our campus. His impact on the lives of staff, faculty and especially his students cannot ever fully be known.
We are grateful for the memories and the years of service.
