Jack Baylis served as the Agriculture teacher and FFA advisor at Mount Markham High School for many years, retiring in 1995. Sadly, Mr. Baylis passed away in January of 2023. As a tribute to his time at Mount Markham, Mr. Baylis’s tools and equipment were donated to Mount Markham FFA by Mrs. Judy Baylis, Jack’s wife. On Wednesday, January 31, Mrs. Baylis came into the high school classroom to meet with students. Students Zach Congden, Eli Assisi, Ryan Treen and Owen Allen showed Mrs. Baylis the progress made in organizing and installing equipment in the shop. Mike Brown, a former student of Jack’s, helped facilitate getting the equipment to the high school. Mike has been a strong supporter of Mount Markham FFA since the chapter rechartered in 2017.
