School continues to be ’16 alumnus’ first love | Marion County File

The 2016 Marion High School class will not be going to a restaurant or a ballroom for their class reunion. Instead, the class makes a hot dog roast at Marion County Lake.

“We used to have a lot of bonfires so I’m really looking forward to it,” said former student Bailey (Robson) Edmondson. “It sounds like a really small town thing.”

Edmondson participated in basketball (which his father coached), cheerleading, and a musical at Marion High School.

“I did a lot of things in high school,” she says. “Each activity had a different group of friends, so it was a really fun way to get to know a group of people.”

Edmondson has been working at Heritage Christian Academy in Olathe as a school nurse and school support coordinator since July. She took after her father by becoming an assistant basketball coach.

She also runs a home bakery, inspired by her work with Rachel Collett at CB Baked Goods, as well as serving a summer after college as a head baker on a Colorado ranch.

“I would cook for 100 people, three meals a day, seven days a week,” she said. “It ended up being incredibly difficult, but I grew a lot that summer. That’s when I really started to love baking and thought about how I could make it my own.

Her parents keep her posted on school activities while she lives in the Kansas City area.

After five years, she is still close to many high school friends, who have become roommates, bridesmaids and more mature people.

“I feel like Marion had, at least when I was in high school, a very tight-knit class group,” she said. “I felt like these classes were definitely closer to each other, more than the stereotypical high school.”
