Baenen said he wanted to encourage students to pursue a career in broadcast journalism and to learn the skills to prepare them for this rapidly evolving field. He also wanted to give back to MSUM for giving him tools, training and experience for a 42-year career with The Associated Press, including 24 years as Minnesota broadcast editor in Minneapolis. He retired from AP in September 2020.

Baenen dedicates his scholarship to the memory of his parents, longtime Jamestown residents Jerrold and Shirley Baenen.
