Interview: Bakersfield College President Sonya Christian On "Kern Promise"

May 16, 2017

A new collaboration between the Kern High School District, Bakersfield College and CSUB aims to get students on a speedy pathway from high school to community college, and eventually a four-year college degree. It's called the "Kern Promise" but Bakersfield College President Sonya Christian calls it the key to revitalizing the community. She joined us on Valley Edition to talk about how the project works, and also how the campus is planning to spend money approved by voters last fall when they passed a $503 million district-wide bond known as "Measure J."
