East Bakersfield High fundraising for “We The People” trip

After being selected to participate in the 2017 “We The People” national finals, East Bakersfield High School is working hard to raise the more than $43,000 needed to attend the event next month in Washington, D.C.

“We The People” tests student knowledge on the Constitution and has been a mainstay competition among schools in the Kern High School District. East Bakersfield High was granted the opportunity to compete in the finals as part of the Warren Burger Class of 2017, which provides schools from economically disadvantaged areas to compete in the event.

“I have been involved in the “We the People” program for over ten years and the last four years as the teacher/Coach at my alma mater, EBHS,” said James Dominguez, the teacher coach of the school’s program. “It is an honor to be selected as the Warren E. Burger Class and competing at the National Finals in Washington D.C. for the first time in the 79 year history of EBHS. This is a once in a life time opportunity for the students of EBHS to showcase their academic excellence at the national level.”

The teams are currently practicing and fundraising for this amazing experience. The team of 19 students need to raise $43,200 to cover expenses for the trip to the National Finals. Two fundraisers are coming up:

  • March 18: Car Wash with Breakfast, 7:00 am-1:00 pm EBHS campus, Mt. Vernon Avenue parking lot. Presale tickets are $10. Call 871-7221 for information.
  • March 20: Dinners to Go, Tri-tip, rib, or pulled pork sandwich dinners for $10. Call 871-7221 for information.
