Every year the TeamMates Mentoring Program recognizes mentors that go above and beyond for their community. Baxter has served on the state and local board of TeamMates and has been a key part of the North Platte chapter and their successes. Baxter also spends time recruiting mentors to be apart of the program.

Baxter said, “I love being around young people, I love seeing them grow and develop and realize their own gifts and how they can use those to enhance their lives.”

He believes the impact that a mentor has on a child is one that they can take with them forever.
