Weeks ago, after New Yearâ€™s Day and before Groundhog Day, PAHS senior Dane Baker successfully auditioned to serve as one of the four emcees â€” along with Micky DeChurch, Ali Mancuso and Keaton Mohney â€” for the 2012 Variety Show.
â€śBoth of my parents were very excited,â€ť Baker said. But he didnâ€™t know a very coincidental fact that he shared with his mother, Mary Ann (Pisarcik) Baker.
