Edison High School in Alexandria, VA held Junior Focus Day. The entire class of 2014 participated in a half day conference that allowed students to attend workshops centered on planning for life after high school.

Redskins Nose Tackle Chris Baker was a surprise guest speaker who spoke on NCAA Eligibility. He talked about what it takes to be recruited and meet the NCAA eligibility standards.

Baker’s former high school guidance counselor Cassandra Deedy, now works at Edison High School and asked him to come speak. She knew his message would be extremely valuable and meaningful for the students. He shared his experiences on how he balanced sports and academics.

Deedy said that Baker really touched  the juniors during his speech. One student came up to him afterwards and said “before today, I didn’t think I was going to do anything.  But now after listening to you speak, that has changed and you’ve really motivated me! Thank you.”
