October 28, 2016 – The Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) Education Foundation held a special event this week to unveil the “Tree of Knowledge,” a fundraising project to benefit teacher and technology grants.
The event took place in the main lobby of the Education Center on 1300 Baker St. The “Tree of Knowledge” display is featured on the front wall of the lobby and includes several multi-colored leaves and rocks where the names of the donors are permanently engraved. The donations received through the project will help enhance the learning experience of students in the BCSD.
Several Board of Education members, BCSD Administrators, Ed Foundation Directors and Community members were in attendance. President of the Education Foundation Donald Vereen welcomed attendees and stated, “What we are trying to do is create something for the community to be involved in, to enhance education.”
