Rising Baylor School seniors Davis Latimer, Dane Hamilton, Niko Simpkins, Clay Thames, Matthew Davis, Virginia McEvoy, Chris Chen, Rose Dallimore, Hayley Harwood, Abby Freeman, Isabelle Drayer, Grace McKenny, and Hannah Berke have been selected for the Joe Key Award, a trip that recognizes selfless character and involves seven days of sea-kayaking, hiking, and camping on the islands in Acadia National Park this July. 

The trip honors the late Joe Key, who worked at Baylor from 1961 to 1988 as a military instructor and study hall supervisor and was affectionately known as "Sarge."

The trip honors students of admirable character whose selfless efforts might otherwise go unrecognized by the school or their peers. He was the father of science instructor Perry Key '81.
