2016 Veteran’s Day Parade

We hope you had the opportunity to share in the 97th annual Veteran’s Day festivities. Our very own Cadet Corps, band, cheerleaders, and color guard marched in the parade through downtown Bakersfield on Friday, November the 11th. Great job to all the students who represented our school!
