In the runoff, held July 28 through August 25, Baker received 10,088 votes, and Dwight E. Collier of Haughton received 4,085.

Baker retired in 1990 with 36 years of service as a teacher and counselor. She was first elected to the board in 1978 as an active member representative and, while serving in that capacity, was the first woman ever elected as the board's chair. She begins her new four-year term in January 2006. The TRSL Board of Trustees meets monthly to develop policies for the administration of the retirement plan, monitor investment performance, review investment manager portfolios, and review system operations.
