BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Students at East High School need your help to raise money for the National Finals of the We the People competition coming in April.
The East High team of 19 students has been selected as the Warren Burger Class for 2017. It's a special designation to honor students from an economically challenged school that demonstrated a high level of academic achievement.

The second is Monday, March 20, with dinners to go featuring tri-tip, rib, or pulled pork sandwiches dinners for $10. For more information, call 871-7221.
