Ben Baxley
Junior, Ben Baxley’s favorite color is blue, but that doesn’t match his sunny  personality. Ben “Bean”(as addressed by his friends and siblings) Baxley has been a student at Stratford for eight years, since the fourth grade. Ben is going into his third year on the Gazebo and is co-sports editor with his brother Will. He is on the varsity football team, track team, and basketball team. He participates in the Pep, Beta, Key, Spanish, and Ecology clubs. Ben loves Stratford’s environment and FLIK’s potatoes. If he could change one thing about this school, he would bring back a rotating fifth period. On the weekends, you may find Ben playing sports with his friends, playing video games, and watching episodes of “The Office.” Although Ben may get annoyed if you ask him for a pencil, he enjoys a quality joke, and appreciates a funny meme. Ben’s siblings Will (senior) and Annie (eighth grade) also go to Stratford. The family shares a goldendoodle named Maggie. Ben’s a practical guy, and if he won a million dollars he would put the money towards investments. And maybe, just maybe, if he had enough money left over, he would buy a nice Jeep. If Ben could have a super power he would like to have superspeed. This skill might make traveling the world, and meeting celebrities easier for him to check off of his bucket list. And if Ben could leave younger students any advice, it would be for them to “work hard, be [themselves] and have fun.”  --Miller Cranford
