This talented Stratford High student has earned numerous awards and recognition for his talents in theater, including a nomination this year for a prestigious Tommy Tune Award for Best Actor in the city.

Graham has served as a Student Council class representative. He played on the football, golf and baseball teams, was a three-year varsity choir member, and was active in the theater program for four years. Graham was a featured performer for the past three years in many Stratford plays.
A Memorial Drive United Methodist Church member, he serves in a Senior Leadership program and Youth Fellowship. He is a member of Young Life. Graham was selected as one of the back-up singers for Lyle Lovett at this year’s SBEF Benefit concert.

Graham writes, “My interest in pursuing a stage career has evolved as I have grown from being Batman, through performing on a field, and now as an actor on a stage. The discipline and leadership I have learned from my experience in athletics and in theater in Spring Branch and at Stratford High School are foundations for what I hope is a successful journey through college.”

He plans to study musical theater at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

2013 Benjamin Cuellar Scholarship Winner
This scholarship was set up by the family of Benjamin Cuellear in his memory. Benjamin was an English teacher at Stratford High School. Mr. Cuellar’s family felt very strongly that a great way to honor their son was to help graduating seniors continue their educational dreams. At this Awards Night, Benjamin’s parents, Julie Sanchez and Juan Cuellar, presented the family award to Graham Baker of Stratford High School.
